Jeremiah is regarded as one of the Bible’s “Major Prophets” for very good reason. He prophesied the downfall of kings, the coming of an invading king, the destruction of Jerusalem, the eventual coming of the Messiah, and the rise and fall of Israel’s surrounding nations. Not only are the contents of this book one of the foundations for understanding much of the New Testament, Jeremiah as a person served as a type of Christ. When Jesus asked His disciples who people were saying He was, they responded, “Some say you are Jeremiah!” To understand Jeremiah is to gain an insight into the person and work of Jesus Christ. Added to these significant factors, the Book of Jeremiah forms a treasure chest of rich Biblical doctrine that unfolds the condition of humanity, the heart of God, the nature of Scripture, the person and work of Christ, eschatology, and New Covenant theology.
