This is the first of three weeks that we’ll be reading through the book of Jeremiah together. It’s an amazing epic that is the longest book of the Bible (by word count) and one of the great, though tragic stories of scripture.
In this episode we’ll be introduced to Jeremiah as a very young man and we’ll talk about the Rule of the Reluctant Prophet.
Despite his misgivings, we’ll see Jeremiah stand bravely to give a hard word to the people. We’ll see the people reject him for false prophets. We’ll also see the depth of the people’s sins that are bringing about God’s anger and Jeremiah’s prophecies.
The Bible Reading Coach podcast is designed to help anyone read through the Bible in a year. In 10-15 minutes each Friday, I’ll introduce you to the passage for the following week, including:
- What it’s about
- How to deal with challenging passages
- How the original readers saw it
- How it applies today
- And much more
After listening, take the next week to read the passage on your own. This time you’ll have a clearer understanding of it.
