Extract from the Preface:

“They have Moses and the Prophets, let them hear them.” So said the Lord Jesus Christ. But both Israel and the Gentiles have been slow to hear; and it will be so, until the prophets ‘prophesy again’, when all the earth will be compelled to listen.

Jeremiah is the second of the ‘greater prophets’ as set out in our Bible, Isaiah being the first. Jeremiah is different from Isaiah: sadder, and not so apocalyptic. Indeed his very name has passed into the language as descriptive of a lamentation. A ‘Jeremiad’ is ‘A lamentation, a writing or speech in a strain of grief or distress, a doleful complaint’.

There was good reason for the prophet’s sadness. The end was coming upon ‘the Kingdom of the Lord over Israel’ because of incurable apostasy, and Jeremiah ‘knew it’. But nevertheless he spoke of God as ‘the Hope of Israel’, and by the word of the Lord proclaimed the immortality of the ‘Holy Nation’.

He foretold ‘a New Thing in the Earth’ – the healing of the backsliding ‘Virgin of Israel’ through the intervention of ‘the Virgin’s Son’.

What Immanuel has already accomplished is the earnest that he will presently ‘restore again the Kingdom of Israel’. For this we wait, in full assurance of faith and hope.
