Last week I spent the time talking about Isaiah, and this week I want to touch on a different prophet: Jeremiah.
There is something else interesting about the text; something worthy of being mentioned here:
There are basically two versions of the Book of Jeremiah. You might initially be thinking I'm talking about the biblical text and an extra-biblical text. No. I'm talking about two texts that predate our English translation of the bible.
The "original" Hebrew bible can be found in two languages: Hebrew and Greek. Here's what's interesting about these two translations.
Finally, the above picture. This is an image of Jeremiah, as painted by Michelangelo from the Sistine Chapel ceiling.
