The potency of Jeremiah's rhetoric matches the severity of the judgment Judah experienced at the hands of the Babylonian army. Left without temple, land, or king, the book makes the astonishing claim that God has uprooted God's chosen people. But this word of judgment is not final. Restoration will come, but only after judgment has fallen. We’ll explore this critical moment in Israel's life and consider how the book of Jeremiah can inform Christianity identity.
