SUNDAY, JUNE 7
In addition to addressing the people of Judah about their sin and need for repentance, Jeremiah also spoke prophecies. Some of his prophecies were about when Israel would face the consequences of their sin. Some of his prophecies were about a future day and a future hope. Jeremiah promised a Messiah was coming—a Messiah who would rescue His people. Check out part of Jeremiah’s promise of a new covenant in Jeremiah 31:31-34.

Christ in Context: The Book of Jeremiah reveals God’s message to a rebellious and
sinful people. Jeremiah shared that salvation for God’s people would only come
after God’s wrath for their sin had been satisfied. Likewise, our salvation can
come only after God’s wrath for our sin has been satisfied. Jesus experienced
God’s wrath for our sin when He died on the cross. His death paid for our
A Messiah Was Promised, Jeremiah 23; 30; 31; 33
The religious leaders had sinned. The kings had sinned. The leaders of God’s people sinned and sinned and sinned. But one day, God would send His people a Messiah who would never sin. Jeremiah shared about the Messiah in his writings.
God promised, “A time will come when I will raise up a Righteous Branch for David. He will reign as a wise king and bring justice and righteousness. He will be called The Lord is Our Righteousness.”
On another occasion Jeremiah prophesied more about the Messiah. “A day is coming,” Jeremiah wrote, “when God will make a new covenant with His people.” This covenant would be different from the one God made at Mt. Sinai with the Israelites. The Israelites broke that covenant over and over again.”
God promised, “I will put my teaching in them and write it on their hearts. I will be their God and they will be My people. I will forgive their iniquity and never again remember their sin.”
God was talking about a day when Jesus would come. When Jesus died on the cross to pay for our sin, He brought a new covenant between God and His people. God promised to give grace and forgive our sin. When we repent of our sin and trust Jesus as our Lord and Savior, He transforms our hearts. Our hearts will desire to love and obey God.
Later Jeremiah spoke about the covenant God made with David and about the role of the priest. The Messiah would fulfill the covenant made with David. Jesus is our King. He will reign forever. He is also our Great High Priest. He sacrificed Himself for our sin.
All throughout the Old Testament, God promised to send a Messiah and He did. Jesus is the Messiah. He is our Savior.
