Jeremiah 23-25

  • 23:1-2 – Judah’s rulers were supposed to care for the people but they led them into destruction instead.
  • 23:5-6 – Who does this sound like God is describing? JESUS!! This is a messianic prophecy, which fulfills God’s covenant that David’s line would always reigns and solves the problem of corrupt leadership for Judah.
  • 23:23-24 – God explains that he is near and sees the actions of people. He is not far away or oblivious to peoples’ actions.
  • 23:28-32 – God makes a clear delineation between the prophets he has given a message to and those who he has not. He does not support the messages of those he has not.
  • 23:33-40 – Asking for a “burden” of the Lord is asking for a prophecy, but this is a play on words so that God flips it around and makes the person the burden.
  • 24:1-10 – The good figs are those who were faithful throughout exile and the bad figs were those who did not repent in exile.
  • 25:1-14 – Jeremiah’s prophecy maps out the details of Judah’s exile and why they’re happening.
  • 25:27 – The prophecy encourages the people to drink of destruction. They’re intended to endure the destruction of their own doing until they can take no more and then God will end it
