[Jeremiah: Man of Lamentation or Intercession – A Religious Historical Study on Lamentation and Intercession in the Book of Jeremiah]
Aims and Scope
The study is a religious historical examination of the beginnings of the Prophetic Books and examines Jeremiah’s role as lamenter and intercessor. The key texts in Jer 4–10 and 7; 11; 14–15 are analyzed with editorial critique alongside a comparative exploration of non-biblical, ancient Near Eastern literature lamentation and prophecy. This approach yields a new perspective on the stages in the literary development of the protagonist.
