Month 24 - Jeremiah

Coming up to the 2 year mark we arrive at Jeremiah. The longest book of the Bible (by number of words) is fairly unknown. One of the resources I've been looking at is H Cunliffe-Jones's commentary from the easily-available-in second-hand-bookshops Torch Bible paperbacks series. It's strange that what was probably a fairly pivotal book at the time so rarely surfaces in churches (except for the odd, out-of-context, citation of 29:11). There's a good outline at Bible.org

Films-wise there is just one (that I know of) - Jeremiah (1998), part of the Bible Collection.

Well be starting, as usual at 7:30 at my house, on the 23rd February.
