Jeremiah was known as the “weeping” prophet and the reason why Jerimiah was weeping. Because he was weeping/shedding tears. Over
the sins 0f his people. Jeremiah was born at a troubled time in biblical history. The nation of Israel was divided in 975BC and King
Jeroboam. Was leading Israel and the Northern Kingdom had lost God’s protection! Due to their disobedience to God. The Northern
Kingdom was also conquered by the Assyrians in 721BC. As a result of the Assyrians conquering the Northern Kingdom. Most of the
inhabitants was conquered by the Assyrians and they were forced into slavery or captivity. Jerimiah served as God’s prophet and in the last
days of Judah, and Jeremiah delivered God’s messages of warning. Even though Jeremiah preached for forty years. The people of Judah
did not repent or turn from their evil ways! The book of Lamentations is the pinnacle or climax of these prophesies. The book of
Lamentations is a testimony to the sure fulfillment of God’s promised judgements. Yet the book of Lamentations does offer hope and it
gives us a glimpse of God’s forgiving heart. The book of Lamentations shows us that God will forgive and relive the sufferings of his people!
