Jeremiah in Jerusalem - Demolition and Reconstruction

40:59

Episode description

Jeremiah was given the task of sharing some very bad news with Israel: armies were about to pour in from the north to bring about unparalleled destruction.
  
But he also brings a message of hope and restoration, of a great reversal that will happen… in God’s time.
  
In this exposition of Jeremiah 1:10-16 we look at how Jeremiah's message of destruction and hope, uprooting and replanting, demolition and reconstruction, work together, and how both point to Jesus.
