Bible Study with Pastor Thomas

January 8 - February 5
Chapel, Kempsville Location

We will be studying the book of Jeremiah. The prophet Jeremiah's ministry began around 627 BC when he was only 20 years old. His work was during the last days of the southern kingdom of Judah before it fell to Babylon. His words of God's judgment fell on the ears of people who had ignored God's commands even with the threat of outside powers.

How does this apply today? Jeremiah wrote clearly about the new covenant God would make with His people through Jesus. This new covenant is what restores us to God, allowing us to have a personal relationship with Him.

Jeremiah 31:31–34 (NLT):
"The day is coming,” says the LORD, “when I will make a new covenant with the people of Israel and Judah. This covenant will not be like the one I made with their ancestors when I took them by the hand and brought them out of the land of Egypt. They broke that covenant, though I loved them as a husband loves his wife,” says the LORD. “But this is the new covenant I will make with the people of Israel after those days,” says the LORD. “I will put my instructions deep within them, and I will write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people. And they will not need to teach their neighbors, nor will they need to teach their relatives, saying, ‘You should know the LORD.’ For everyone, from the least to the greatest, will know me already,” says the LORD. “And I will forgive their wickedness, and I will never again remember their sins."
