Jeremiah

Jeremiah was the chief author of the book that bears his name. He was the son of Hilkiah, a priest in the line of Abiathar, who lived at Anathoth. Because he was raised in a Levitical tribe, Jeremiah learned a high regard for the law of the Lord and the importance of the temple and priesthood.

Jeremiah prophesied during the reigns of Judah's last kings. His prophetic ministry was during the days of Josiah (640-609 B.C.) until Jerusalem's fall in the reign of Zedekiah (598-586 B.C.). The prophet of the LORD GOD was a deeply spiritual man, and was completely dedicated to Him. In spite of his timid nature, he was able to overcome his shyness by his fervent love for God. Although Jeremiah's message was one of inevitable judgment upon Judah, he also delivered news of great consolation. He spoke of God dealing again with a repentant people in a new covenant through which the promised blessings would be realized. His prophecy extended deeply into times to come, when the great final gathering of God's people to Himself for the Messiah's everlasting reign.
