To understand a text, we need to know the circumstances that form the setting. We need to know the context. The words of Jeremiah then MUST be understood within his world, the events of which are presented in 2 Kings, 2 Chronicles, the prophetic books of Jeremiah, Zephaniah, and some of Ezekiel. Context provides clarity. What can we learn about the words of Jeremiah from a careful study of the context provided by other biblical texts in other biblical books? In this teaching, we examine events recorded in Kings and Chronicles and look for traces of these events within the words of Jeremiah.
