CBS: Jeremiah 7-20

Recorded December 11, 2012.

Jeremiah is one of the “classical prophets” who preached against abuses of worship, infidelity and injustice. he was very scathing of idolatry, worshiping inanimate objects rather than the living God (e.g 10:2-16). He threatened exile for the people and destruction of Jerusalem if they did not repent.

Jeremiah often used vivid visual images to get his, or rather God’s, message across. For example, in 18:1-12, he sees God as a potter, reshaping the clay if the object he is making has not turned out well. Jeremiah suffered much persecution for announcing God’s word, even asserting that God has “duped” him. However, he remains one of the most passionate of the prophets.
