This quiz, Jeremiah, looks at the ‘weeping prophet’.
The second of the Prophetic Books, and the twenty-fourth book in the Bible, is the Book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah lived 80 -100 years after the death of Isaiah and was the prophet to the last five kings of Judah. He has been called the 'weeping prophet' because of his sadness for his people's sin, and he witnessed the capture of Jerusalem and the exile of its people, both of which he had predicted would come if the people did not turn back to God.
Jeremiah is not all doom and gloom. He tells us of God's promise to renew his people in the future.
