Topic: Old Testament
God promised to exile His people from their land if they turned from Him, and now Jerusalem’s time has come. The people worshiped other gods, perverted justice in the land, and ignored His laws. As a result the Babylonians will destroy the city, raze the holy temple, leaving a heap of ashes and ruins as they carry the Jews away.
But even as the Lord plans Jerusalem’s destruction, He sends his people the Prophet Jeremiah to warn, challenge, and comfort them.
