This Sunday, August 6: Exile Part 1
This summer we are taking an extended look at the journey of God’s people as recorded in some of the key books of the Old Testament. We believe that the whole story of God and his people ultimately points to and finds its fulfilment in the person of Jesus Christ. The better we know this story the better we’ll know Jesus’ story and the better we’ll understand our own story as followers of Jesus. We continue our journey this week with the prophet Jeremiah.
“Jeremiah announces that God will judge Israel’s sins with an exile to Babylon. And then, he lives through the horror of his predictions.
After years of straying from God’s ways, King Josiah guided the people back to godliness, with Jeremiah’s help. God speaks to the prophet. Since before he was born, God has known him intimately and has dedicated him to his service. He will support him in this ministry, despite his youth, inexperience, and apparent lack of authority.” (The Bible Project 2017. https://thebibleproject.com/explore/jeremiah/)
