Jeremiah: Inspired Prophet and Poet

From the January 1970 issue of The Christian Science Journal


Jeremiah, one of the last of the seers before the Babylonian exile of the Jews, was outstanding among the seventh-century prophets for his obedience, strength, and courage, though at the same time he was greatly misunderstood. He was a man of deep sincerity, but some of the causes he espoused were unpopular with many of his countrymen, even considered contrary to national interest and policy.
