JEREMIAH: A Parable of Jesus
Douglas D. Webster

The Gospel according to Jeremiah provides some of the best statements of hope and promise in all the Bible. Beyond his costly obedience and faithful endurance, Jeremiah expressed the gospel message of hope. He was the prophet of God's gracious promise: "For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future." He would be disappointed to be remembered only for his messages of judgment and lamentation, because he saw himself as the prophet of the Lord's new covenant.

Long before the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, Jeremiah embodied the Gethsemane mind-set, took up his cross daily and lived in the power of the resurrection. In his hard-hitting prophetic message, the hope of the Gospel prevailed. Jeremiah's life was a parable of Jesus pointing forward to "The Lord Our Righteousness." Jeremiah didn't sermonize, he embodied the word of the Lord in his life and character. He was not the Incarnate One, but he lived an incarnational life.

"'JEREMIAH: A Parable of Jesus' is brimming with exegetical sensitivity and pastoral insight. Lacking the sterile detachment of much contemporary literature, Webster's engagement with Jeremiah has within it a palpable urgency that is similar to the prophetic book itself. What Jeremiah says, what Jeremiah complains about, what Jeremiah is passionate about, all of these questions matter in this exposition. For Webster the exegesis of Jeremiah is not merely an exercise in historical excavation. Jeremiah's prophetic word is alive. Because of this canonical commitment, Webster masterfully pushes beyond a mere description of the text to its subject matter and significance. This is theological and pastoral exegesis that is sure to cahllenge its readers and stimulate a love for the gospel of Jesus Christ and the transformative power it contains." - Mark Gignilliat, auther of 'Karl Barth and the Fifth Gospel: Barth's Theological Exegesis of Isaiah,' Assistant Professor of Divinity at Beeson Divinity School
