Gordon D. Fee and Douglas Stuart on Jeremiah

Gordon D. Fee and Douglas Stuart, How to Read the Bible Book by Book: A Guided Tour (Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 2002), 194:

‘The book of Jeremiah is a constant reminder of God’s faithfulness to his word in Deuteronomy that his elect will be cursed by exile for their unfaithfulness to Yahweh but will be restored at a later time with the hope of a new covenant – which was fulfilled through Jesus Christ, David’s “righteous branch” (Jer 23:5).’
