Truth for Today Commentary: Jeremiah 26-52 and Lamentations
Heedless of Jeremiah's warnings, Judah persisted in sin. The people listened to the encouraging words of false prophets and persecuted Jeremiah for speaking the truth.
In the concluding part of this study, Dayton Keesee reviews the ruin of God's chosen nation at the hands of Babylon. The sad story of Jeremiah's ministry culminates with the destruction of Jerusalem even after his lifetime of preaching repentance to avoid complete desolation. The prophet's reaction to the tragic fall of Jerusalem is captured in his brief, poetic Book of Lamentations.
