Finding Jesus in Lamentations
Lamentations, another book of poetry in the Bible, written by the prophet Jeremiah, illuminates another portrait of Jesus. The fascinating literary structure of Hebrew writings points us to the center of the book of Lamentations. God's people were in exile but Jeremiah points them to the center. That is where we find hope. At the center of it (Lam 3) we find where we should put our focus " Because of the Lord's great love..." Jeremiah reminds us that God is faithful. Even to this day, our hope is in Jesus, He will redeem all of our struggles for His glory! Jesus is the Salvation for the afflicted. Our hope is in Him.
