Chapter 27 is ridiculously redundant to all the previous chapters. 29 is not much better.
Chapter 28 on the other hand gives us rival prophets! Prophet Hananiah comes to spread the good word. Babylon is gonna be toast and God will be be restored to his rightful place in the eyes of his chosen people.
Was Jeremiah really wearing a yoke?!?!
Jeremiah says 'Nope. God is going to make you folks suffer. And Hananiah, your a dead man'
Actual Bible Quote of the Week!
29:17 Thus saith the LORD of hosts; Behold, I will send upon them the sword, the famine, and the pestilence, and will make them like vile figs, that cannot be eaten, they are so evil.
The Israelites are used to the sword, the famine and the pestilence so God sends them a bad fruit basket from Harry and David.
