Jeremiah 1-3

  • 1:4-10 – Like several others called by God, Jeremiah has an excuse of why he can’t possibly be God’s instrument. God disagrees and assures him that he will.
  • 1:13-14 – Babylon is to the north and eventually fulfills this prophecy.
  • 1:18 – Jeremiah will be protected by God as long as he is serving God.
  • 2:1-30 – Through Jeremiah, God remembers the connection he had with Israel and then how sharply they turned from him. They cannot deny how much they’ve forsaken him because he gives specific examples.
  • 3:1-10 – The wife’s “whoredom” is describing Israel’s tendencies to worship other gods. Judah saw Israel’s unfaithfulness and instead of learning from it, emulated it.
  • 3:11-18 – God speaks of how he will forgive Israel and allow them to return to him.
  • 3:19-25 – God calls Israel to repent.
