Jeremiah 1 - 3

Jeremiah
JeremiahSteve Gregg

In this study, Steve Gregg focuses on the first three chapters of the biblical book of Jeremiah. He highlights the length of the book and Judah's state of idolatry and apostasy during Jeremiah's time. Gregg explores Jeremiah's call to prophesy and the symbolisms used in his visions, such as the touch of his mouth and the "root pull down, destroy throw down, build plant" metaphor. The study also touches on the theme of rebellion against God and the importance of returning to a reliance on God's living waters, rather than turning to religious systems that lack life.
