In this study it is argued that the book of Jeremiah was influenced by the books of Amos and Hosea. All three books show a similar pattern of development. There is a correspondence between the reactions of those addressed and the prophetic massage, which changes from the preaching of repentance to a message of irreversible judgment. Finally, these prophets testified that only God could bring about a new future. This study, which originally took the form of a dissertation, examines several topics common to Hosea, Amos and Jeremiah. Dr. Lalleman demonstrates important correspondences which point to a prophetic tradition received and developed by Jeremiah in his own way. The research concentrates on the themes of repentance and hope, covenant, and the role of the prophet in intercession, as well as his personal involvement in his message. The differences between these prophetic books, however, show that the individual characteristics of each prophet must not be neglected. The assumption of one monolithic Deuteronomistic redaction responsible for the editing of all the books is therefore unlikely. The prophets are best interpreted in their own historical contexts, although they are connected by a common spiritual heritage, a prophetic tradition.

This book examines the problem of theodicy arising from the fall of Jerusalem (587 B.C.E.) in the book of Jeremiah. It explores the ways in which the authors of the book of Jeremiah tried to explain away their God's responsibility while clinging to the idea of divine mastery over human affairs. In order to trace the development of a particular book's understanding of God's role in meting out punishments, this book analyzes all the passages containing the word pivotal,הכעיס (“to provoke to anger”) in Deuteronomistic History and the book of Jeremiah.

The Covenant Motif in Jeremiah’s Book of Comfort: Textual and Intertextual Studies of Jeremiah 30-33 examines Jeremiah’s promise of a new covenant that God will interiorize his law into people’s hearts. This in-depth syntactic, semantic, and pragmatic study of selected texts in Jeremiah 30-33 comprises the foundation for a superb biblical theology of the new covenant. God’s pledge that this covenant is «not like the one I made with your fathers» is explored in relation to the Abrahamic, Mosaic, and Davidic covenants. Tiberius Rata makes a theologically and hermeneutically balanced incursion into Old Testament texts used in the New Testament and provides a springboard for further discussion on difficult yet important issues such as the Lord’s Supper and the future of Israel.

In The Unity of the Bible, Duane L. Christensen examines the content and structure of the Bible as a whole -- the "Word of God." To this end, the author presents the Bible as a single book with an elaborate structure that informs and relates the theology of its entirety. Christensen constructs the Bible we have today around two major historical stages in its canonical or authoritative formation. He analyzes the structure of the Bible in this historical context. The first stage (1200-400 BCE) is centered around the destruction of Jerusalem and the destruction of the First Temple (586 BCE) followed by the subsequent Babylonian Exile, making it the end of ancient Jerusalem. This is the stage that gives rise to the Old Testament, or Tanakh, wherein Christensen finds structural, so-called "menorah, " patterns that continue into the New Testament. The second stage (20 BCE-70CE) is centered around the destruction of Herod's Temple (70CE) and gives rise to the New Testament or what Christensen terms "Completed Tanakh." The structure of both Old and New Testaments Christensen finds to be interlocking and intricate, with one emanating from and flowing into the other, suggesting that the New Testament arises from the Old, as if by divine, mysterious design.

In the first half of the 20th century there was immense scholarly interest in the biography of the prophet Jeremiah as the background for understanding the development of the book of Jeremiah. Around the turn of the century this interest disappeared, but it has now resurfaced in a transformed configuration as work seeking to analyze the creation of the literary persona, Jeremiah the prophet. This volume examines the construction of Jeremiah in the prophetic book and its afterlife, presenting a wide range of scholarly approaches spanning the understanding of Jeremiah from Old Testament times via the Renaissance to the 20th century, and from theology to the history of literature.
