    The book of Jeremiah presents the life and ministry of one of Judah’s greatest prophets as he preaches to his once mighty nation now teetering on the brink of disaster.  For more than forty years Jeremiah preaches an unpopular message: repent or perish.  His sermons go unheeded by his  headstrong countrymen< who do their best to silence Jeremiah once and for all.  Opposed, hated, and imprisoned, the heartbroken prophet  lives to see the cruel Babylonians  carry away Judah’s citizens.


    Jeremiah warned the people of their doom if they would not repent. When the prophesies were fulfilled and Jerusalem was destroyed by the Babylonians Jeremiah wrote Lamentations.  Written as five poems this is probably the saddest book of the bible.  However, Jeremiah saw ultimate reason and hope beyond the ruins of his city.  God is sovereign -after all, he had described this judgment years before- and he is gracious. In his mercy Jerusalem will be restored.
