Dear Ladies and Gentlemen:

I greet you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It is my sincere prayer that you are being Blessed even as you read this email.

Today, we will continue the study of the Book of Jeremiah Chapters 24 and 25.

24:7. Although this prophecy has provisional application for the returning exiles in the sixth century B.C., it looks far beyond to Israel's ultimate regathering under the terms of the new covenant. See the note on 31:31-34.

25:1. Chapters 25-51 center on God's jurisdiction over the nations and include His special plans for Israel.

25:4. See the note on 7:13.

25:11. The seventy years of captivity have been variously reckoned. Some consider the number 70 to be a mere round number of a normal life span (cf. Ps. 90:10; Is. 23:15). Others take the 70 years to be literal, but differ as to the starting point of the period. The two most widely held dates for the years involved in the prophecy are :(1) 605-536 B.C., beginning with the captivity of Daniel and ending with the return under Sheshbazzar and Zerubbabel (cf. Dan. 9:1, 2 with 2 Chr. 36:20-23; Ezra 1:1-3); and (2) 586-516 B.C., from the date of Jerusalem's fall until the rebuilding of the temple by Israel's returning exiles (cf. Hag. 1:1-15).

25:26. See the note on 51:41.

25:28. The cup often used as a symbol of divine judgement (Ps. 75:8; Is. 51:17, 22; Ezek. 23:31-34; Rev. 14:10; 16:19). Christ drank the cup of divine wrath against sin for all men (cf. Mark 10:38; 14:36; John 18:11). For cup as a sign of divine blessing, see Psalms 23:5;116:13.

Yours in Jesus Christ,

Bishop William B. Caractor
