Jeremiah

Author - Jeremiah and Baruch
Time - 630 - 575 B.C.

Summary - Jeremiah warns of the impending military force of Babylon that would destroy Jerusalem and enslave the Jews. He urges Jerusalem to turn from its wicked ways, but there is no response. He further warns of the false prophets who are leading the people astray with deceptive doctrines and falsehoods. He urges the Israelites to submit to the Babylonian authority as the instrument of Godís judgement. They do not heed his warnings and the people are carried away to Babylon.
