Proper 24, Year C, Old Testament
Scripture: Jeremiah 31:27-34
Our passage from Jeremiah this week continues the narrative of the past two weeks. First we heard of the destruction of the temple in Jerusalem and the subsequent exile of the people of Judah. Last week, Jeremiah spoke to the people of Judah living in Babylon and conveyed God’s desire for the people to build houses and families in the foreign land. This week, Jeremiah continues his prophesy declaring the coming of a new covenant with God. This new covenant does not nullify the first; rather, because the people broke their covenant, God is showing Mercy by promising to forget their sin and continue moving forward with the people of God.
