Lalleman argues that the idea of creation can already be found in Jeremiah. Jeremiah 4-Jeremiah 5 has parallels in Genesis 1-2 as well as in Jeremiah 33. She believes that there is insufficient ground to assume that Jeremiah 33 represents a post-Jeremiah development. Jeremiah uses also creation as a framework for his proclamation of judgment and doom.
How should we understand the promise of the new covenant in Jeremiah 31:31-34? What are the continuities and discontinuities between the covenants? Kaiser reflects on the issues at stake—the content of the new covenant, the contrast with the Mosaic covenant, and Jeremiah 30 to Jeremiah 33 as a "book of comfort."
No Christian can dispute the necessity of prayer. Why is prayer so important? Focusing on Jeremiah 33:3, the author shows that prayer has a double effect on the believer. Firstly, prayer is is communion with God, and secondly, prayer is enlightenment for the soul. God uses prayer to strengthen our faith in His faithfulness to fulfill His promises.
