Understanding the Book of Jeremiah

Understanding the Book of Jeremiah

Today, for the Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan (Sept – Nov 2019) we will begin reading the book of Jeremiah.   Because it is the longest book (word wise) in the Bible it will take us several weeks to read through it.  Jeremiah’s ministry comes after Zephaniah, and he brings God’s prophetic word to Judah.  “Judgment is one of the all-pervasive themes in Jeremiah’s writings, though he was careful to point out that repentance, if sincere, would postpone the inevitable.”  God is both transcendent and imminent.  As you read discover the great attributes of God, but also see that He is concerned about individual people.

Here’s a video from the Bible Project that will help you understand the book of Jeremiah better.
