Finding Jesus in Jeremiah
A new picture of Jesus as found in the Old Testament can be found in Jeremiah. Doom and gloom preface this book of Jeremiah. God's people simply will not repent! Jeremiah is often seen weeping over the state of the world. We see the parallels but Jesus doesn't just come to lament but to do something about it! Despite a grief stricken God in both ages, peoples hearts are far from God, looking out for themselves and this remains the state of the world even now. The world may be condemned in the age of Jeremiah but Jesus comes to do something about that. Yes, God's wrath must be satisfied and Jesus is just the Messiah to do it. Jeremiah weeps. Jesus weeps. This week's episode reminds us that some things never change, especially Jesus! He is here to save!
