Jeremiah 33

Methaphors of a Cyrptic God

14 The days are surely coming, says the LORD, when I will fulfill the promise I made to the house of Israel and the house of Judah. 15 In those days and at that time I will cause a righteous Branch to spring up for David; and he shall execute justice and righteousness in the land. 16 In those days Judah will be saved and Jerusalem will live in safety. And this is the name by which it will be called: "The LORD is our righteousness."

Musings

Jeremiah Chapters 30-33 is dubbed "the little book of consolation." It ends here with a final vision of the davidic kingdom returning to Judah and Israel (also mentioned elsewhere such as chapter 23) to prominence. Significant for the Israelites because it harkens back to their greatest kingdoms (David's and his son Solomon's) and significant in Christianity due to Jesus' davidic link. However, other than a brief independence under the Maccabees (the Hasmonean dynasty) Israel was not an autonomous nation since Judah's final fall to the Babylonians and until the modern nation was formed in 1948 after World War II.
