Philip King utilizes archaeological artifacts and texts of the late seventh and early sixth centuries BCE, many of them unpublished or not easily accessible, to elucidate the text of the book of Jeremiah, a book that is sometimes described as difficult and whose formation is complicated. By doing so, he adds important spatial and temporal dimension to the history of Israel and to the literature about the life of one of its most significant prophets: Jeremiah.

The books of Jeremiah and Ezekiel contain the majority of the biblical accounts of prophetic sign-actions. By analysing these two prophets' actions according to the terms and concepts used in studies of nonverbal communication and rhetoric, this work seeks to bring conceptual and terminological clarity to the discussion of prophetic sign-acts and to enhance the perception of the prophets as persuasive communicators. Rather than prophetic sign-acts being viewed as having a magical derivation or as being inherently efficacious in bringing about what they portray, the sign-acts are viewed as being primarily forms of nonverbal communication whose purpose was to have a persuasive impact upon spectators.

English summary: The deuteronomic law as interpreted and thus authorized by the Book of Jeremiah - a concise survey of its literary and social history. German description: Das Jeremiabuch mit seiner Vielfalt an literarischen Formen und theologischen Themen ist kontrovers ausgelegt worden - die angelsachsische Exegese behandelt es haufig als geschlossene literarische Groae, im deutschsprachigen Raum uberwiegt eine nach Schichten differenzierende Auslegung. Diese Untersuchung setzt sich mit den Beziehungen des Jeremiabuchs zum Deuteronomium und dem Bild des Propheten als Mahner, der sich an diesen Geboten orientiert. Dabei findet die (kurzere) griechische Textfassung Berucksichtigung, ebenso die These einer synchronen Textgliederung der weitgehend als Reden konzipierten Texte sowie traditionsgeschichtliche und ideologiekritische Methoden.Unter den vielfaltigen Ergebnissen ist besonders hervorzuheben, dass der durch die Geschichte in seiner Unheils-Prophetie bestatigte Jeremia diejenigen Teile des deuteronomischen Gesetzes lehrt, die auf soziale Gerechtigkeit zielen. Als Gesetzeslehrer ist er nach Dtn 18 legitimer Nachfolger des Mose.

This volume contains the proceedings of a Symposium Prophecy in the Book of Jeremiah, arranged by the Edinburgh Prophecy Network in the School of Divinity at the University of Edinburgh, 11 12 May 2007. Prophetic studies are undergoing radical changes at the moment. Whereas it was formerly believed that the historical Jeremiah was hidden under countless additions and reinterpretations, and thus changed beyond recognition, it was still assumed that it would be possible to recover the real prophet with the tools of historical critical methods. However, according to a majority of scholars today, the recovery of the historical Jeremiah is no longer possible. For this reason, the meeting in Edinburgh gathered specialists from Denmark, Finland, Germany, the Netherlands, United Kingdom and the USA, in order to find new and different approaches to the study of prophecy.

The books of Jeremiah and Lamentations cannot be separated from the political conditions of ancient Judah. Beginning with the righteous king Josiah, who ushered in a time of glorious but brief religious reform, Jeremiah reflects the close tie between spiritual and political prosperity or disaster, between the actions and heart of Judah and her kings and their fortunes as a nation. While few of us today have any firsthand understanding of what it means to live in a theocracy, the central theme of Jeremiah and Lamentations remains clear and still holds true: God first, politics second. The words, prayers, and poems of "the weeping prophet" serve to realign us with God’s priorities, turning us from evil and encouraging us to pursue God and his ways. With emotion and spiritual depth, these prophetic writings beckon us toward a spiritual integrity that can still affect the course of individuals and nations today. Most Bible commentaries take us on a one-way trip from our world to the world of the Bible. But they leave us there, assuming that we can somehow make the return journey on our own. They focus on the original meaning of the passage but don’t discuss its contemporary application. The information they offer is valuable--but the job is only half done! The NIV Application Commentary Series helps bring both halves of the interpretive task together. This unique, award-winning series shows readers how to bring an ancient message into our postmodern context. It explains not only what the Bible meant but also how it speaks powerfully today.
