This unit will commence with an overview of the book of Jeremiah and then focus on a selection of what are regarded as key passages. It will examine the various hypotheses about the relationship between the historical Jeremiah and the book that bears his name, as well as the differences between the Hebrew Masoretic Text (MT) and the Greek Septuagint (LXX). It will also reflect on themes in the book such as true and false prophecy, the relationship between prophetic word and sign, and the dual role of the prophet as God’s messenger to the people and intercessor for the people.
