We continue our three-week series on “Joy: The Flip Side of Justice.”
Jeremiah has been called a “prophet of doom” because he announces strong words of judgment to the people of God and gives reason why judgment and devastation come to the nation of Israel. Jeremiah, as God’s spokesman, calls for repentance, for the people have been unfaithful to God’s teaching. Expressions that describe the people’s unfaithfulness include: lying, inability to correct bad behavior, and apostasy, a particularly strong word depicting total abandonment of following the rule of God.
