Lecture 12, Herald of Covenant Promises:
The prophet Jeremiah began his ministry during the reforms of King Josiah. He witnessed the short-lived reforms in Judah and prophesied of a coming exile at the hands of the Babylonians. The prophecies and laments about this historic event are contained the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson examines these books to direct our attention to the promises of God during one of the most calamitous times in the history of Israel.
