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."
Tales from the Crypt
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.
