Patriarchs, Prophets, and Priests Part 2: Jeremiah's Unqualified Calling
As we continue our series called “Patriarchs, Prophets and Priests,” we’re looking at the men and women of the Old Testament who formed the foundation of our faith. We’re learning the events of their lives and the lessons they can teach us. Knowing the entire Bible is from Jesus and points to Him, we are also trying to identify the types and shadows of Christ we see throughout the OT. Last week, we looked at the life of Noah, one of the patriarchs — or fathers — of the faith, and this week, we’re looking at a prophet and priest named Jeremiah. While we explore the lessons that Jeremiah’s life can teach us, please remember that these are not stories or works of fiction; they’re accounts. These people actually lived, and many of them are verifiable through other historical records.
