Disciple Bible Study: Week 12, Reading 4

I’m participating in Disciple Bible Study, a 34 week intensive. For five days, we have different readings.  I have decided to document my initial noticings from a close reading of the scripture. Well, an attempt at a close reading.

Week 12 Theme:  God Restores the People

Readings: Jeremiah 30-33

Noticings:

  • 30:7 – steadfast G*d
  • 30:11 – oh yay.
  • 30:12 – oh. yay. again.
  • 30:15 – G*d inflicts pain
  • 31:3 – but G*d loves you anyway
  • 31:9 – I don't understand why Ephraim is the first born
  • 31:11 – the work has been done, Israel is ransomed
  • 31:31-33 – another "new" covenant
  • 32:8 – Jeremiah buys a field.  Really?  Shows hope/promise of returning to their land.
  • 33:6 – G*d the healer
  • 33:8 – G*d the forgiver
  • 33:17-22 – Christians take seriously the promise that a Davidic descendent will be on the throne, but they ignore the idea of this man's brother also being raised up.
