Search The Scriptures —Study 27 — Jeremiah 39-41

Study 27 From the Book of Jeremiah is: Jeremiah 39-41

The fall of Jerusalem and the events immediately following.
1.     What message did Jeremiah give to Ebed-melech, and why? Cf. Mt. 10:40-42. Is your faith equally practical? Cf. Jas.  2:21-24.
2.     Note Carefully 40:2-3. Could the matter be better summed up than in these words of a heathen officer? Cf. Pr.29:1; Is. 30:9-14.
3.     Most Christians are too ready to believe evil of others. Gedaliah was the opposite. What can we learn from this example?
Notes
1.     39:3. ‘Rabsaris’ means chief of the princes; and ‘Rabmag’, chief of the magi.
2.     39:4. ‘Between the two walls’: i.e., of the city, probably ‘the wall along the west side of the east hill, and along the east side of the west hill’ (Driver).
3.     39:5. ‘Riblah’: in the far north, fifty miles south of Hannath.
4.     41:1. Ishmael was probably jealous that Gedaliah had been appointed governor, and sought to get the remnant of the Jews under his control (41:10).
