This Sunday, August 13: Exile Part 2
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 Book of Lamentations.
“A collection of five funeral poems offered on behalf of Jerusalem after its destruction by Babylon. The Book of Lamentations may not be the most popular book in the Bible, but it is an essential ingredient for helping humans to understand an important aspect of their relationship with God – the expression of grief and distress. Now surrounded by war, grief and suffering, the people of Israel acknowledge their sin and cry out to God for restoration and repentance in the lament poems.
