Jeremiah was a Major Prophet of Old Testament Israel 627-580 B.C.
Jeremiah was called by God in his youth. The Book of Jeremiah proclaims messages of doom and judgement to the inhabitants of Judah. Each narrative is a discourse declaring that the only way to escape judgement is to surrender to the will of God.
Jeremiah means God establishes and sends.
The Book of Jeremiah was dictated by the priest prophet to his scribe. There are many visual object lessons and symbols that warn the people of Judah the time for repentance would soon pass. Among the judgements declared by Jeremiah, God also provided wonderful promises and the coming of The New Covenant.The reference work records the consequences of Judah's refusal to repent. The 70 years of captivity in Babylon is predicted, allowing the land its Sabbaths as the people did not carry out the law about the land that was commanded.
The prophet saw most of the predictions happen in his own lifetime.
The Book of Jeremiah is the second Major Prophetic Book and is a Pre-exile
book; the book is a prophetic canon that contains poetry and does include
Royal History among the accounts.
