Commentary on the Book of Jeremiah
Father Tadross Y. Malaty
The book opens by a little introduction that gives information about the prophet’s homeland, and the dates of beginning and end of his ministry; things that we have already dealt with in the introduction. The whole first chapter came as an introduction to the book.
Like many other prophetic books, this book presented concisely three things to understand it; certain personal information about the prophet; his divine mission; and the duration of his prophetic work; all of which we have already dealt with.
1- Appreciating the divine call
2- Making his heart spacious with love
3- Humility of the soul
4- Courage of the ministry
5- Hiding in the word of God
6- Faithfulness in work
