Item description for Jeremiah 21-36 (The Anchor Yale Bible Commentaries) by Jack R. Lundbom...
Overview Continuing his 3-volume commentary, Lundbom focuses on one of antiquity's most moving narratives from the Hebrew prophet who witnessed the demise of his nation. Denouncing injustice, sexual immorality, and false prophecy, Jeremiah thunders Yahweh's judgment yet offers hope to the remnant people. This impressive work of scholarship replaces John Bright's 1965Anchor Bible Commentary. Verse-by-verse, scholarly resource.
Publishers Description This second book of the three-volume Anchor Bible Commentary offers an astute translation and commentary on the middle sixteen chapters of Jeremiah. Important themes in the present volume include injustice within Judah's royal house, sexual immorality among the clergy, and true versus false prophecy. Yet the prophet who thundered Yahweh's judgment was also the one who gave the remnant people--in oracle and in symbolic action--a promise and a hope, expressed climactically in a new and eternal covenant for future days. Here too is the only report in the Bible of an accredited scribe writing up a scroll of oracles for public reading at the Temple. This magisterial work of scholarship is sure to be essential to any biblical studies curriculum. "Jeremiah 21-36" draws on the best biblical scholarship to further our understanding of this preeminent prophet and his message to the world.
