Jeremiah, Hebrew prophet, reformer, and author of a biblical book that bears his name. He was closely involved in the political and religious events of a crucial era in the history of the ancient Near East; his spiritual leadership helped his fellow countrymen survive multiple disasters. JEREMIAH 1 The Life and Times of Jeremiah the Prophet. David C F Wright DD Jeremiah has been unfairly labelled as the prophet of doom and gloom. In fact, if someone is of a miserable disposition they may be called a Size: 20KB. The major parts of the book are usually delineated as follows: prophecies against Judah and Jerusalem (chapters 1–25), narratives about Jeremiah (chapters 26–45), prophecies against foreign nations (chapters 46–51), and a historical appendix (chapter 52). The prophecies in the first part of the book derive mostly. With the single exception of the Book of Isaiah, which contains the works of more than one prophet, the Book of Jeremiah is the longest of the prophetic books of the Old Testament. Jeremiah contains a considerable amount of material of a biographical and historical nature in addition to the prophet's own words.

Jeremiah’s life and times Jeremiah served as one of God’s prophets through the rule of five kings of Judah (Josiah, Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin and Zedekiah). He even continued to plead God’s case against Judah during the time of Jerusalem’s destruction by the Babylonians in B.C. (Jeremiah ; ). The book of Jeremiah is recognized as his own writings and a complete book just like the book of Isaiah. In Jeremiah , 4, 8, 32 it is written that Jeremiah collected his own writings and prophecies, some speculate that he put the book together with Baruch in the land of Egypt but there is no way to know for certain.

Historical Setting: The time frame of the Book of Jeremiah stretches from the prophet’s call in B.C. until his later life among the Judean refugees in Egypt some years after the fall of Jerusalem in B.C. These were trying times for Judah.

Jeremiah was called, early in life, to serve during King Josiah of Judah's 13th reigning year in B.C. At the time of his calling he was young (possibly 20 years old) and initially protested to God that his youth prohibited him from doing his will. He was not allowed to have a wife or children (Jeremiah - 2, 4 - 6, ). Because of his prophecy, Jehoiakim seeks out Jeremiah, but the "LORD hid him" (). At this time, Jeremiah rewrote his book, this time "adding many more words" (). For his insulting manner, Jehoiakim receives the message that he is to be given the burial of an ass. Jeremiah 's Background. The great prophet Jeremiah lived during the most crucial period of Judah 's existence as a kingdom. He saw the destruction of Jerusalem and the holy Temple, after he had incessantly warned his people to mend their ways before it was too when the catastrophe finally overwhelmed his people, he was the one who bitterly lamented Israel 's terrible fate in the Book Author: Jacob Isaacs. Jeremiah's life is one of the loneliest and saddest in Scripture. His personal experiences were bitter; the message of disaster he had to proclaim was depressing and unwelcome; and the times in which he lived were of unparalleled calamity. His cause was lost from the beginning, because the people would not hear him.
