Example text

Jeremiah speaks of himself as a child who does not know how to speak and yet in the power of God he becomes a mighty fortress, standing for the truth amid all the storms and the violent and swirling currents of history in his time. He is absolutely clear that God's judgement is pronounced against his people. The reforms of Josiah have come too late. The people are too deeply corrupted. They still imagine that God is like one of the socalled gods of the nations, one whose only business is to protect them and look after their interests provided they offer all the necessary sacrifices and worship.

And yet the Bible is quite frank in recording not only David's personal sin but also the confusion in his family life which was to lead to civil war and the sad ending of his kingdom. David is followed by Solomon in whom the prophecies of Samuel are amply fulfilled. Solomon becomes a typical oriental potentate gathering to himself power, riches, women, gold, engaging in huge building projects and centralizing power in Jerusalem. It is not long, indeed Solomon is hardly in his grave, before the whole thing has broken up and his ablest labour leader, Jeroboam, has carried away ten of the twelve tribes to found a separate kingdom with Samaria as its capital, and to form a separate centre of worship to replace the temple in Jerusalem.

This cup will be the new covenant which Jeremiah had promised, in which the law of God will be written not on tablets of stone but in the hearts of men and women. And he commands them to do this so that when everything else seems to have been shattered beyond repair, they will have this action to bind them forever to him and make them partakers of his dying and of his victory. Death and Victory And so he leads them down that long flight of stepswhich is still there todayinto the garden of Gethsemane.
