The Book of Jeremiah, particularly known for its extensive proclamation of Yahweh’s judgment, also contains a wide variety of messages of hope, which announce a future beyond judgment. The project investigates these messages, both the distinctiveness of each of them and their historical and theological relationships. Starting with Jeremiah’s early oracles to the former Northern Kingdom, the project aims to trace the development of the prophet’s messages of hope, up to and including its articulation in the book’s later, redactional layers. In addition, it aims to study these messages from a Biblical-theological perspective, as part of God’s revelation in Scripture.
