To Whom Did God Send Jeremiah?

To Whom Did God Send Jeremiah

God commissioned Jeremiah to his ministry in Jeremiah 1:1-16. But to whom did God commission Jeremiah?

In other words, was Jeremiah sent to the nations or to the nation — of Judah, that is? The answer is yes

Jeremiah 1:4-10: The Nations

The first part of Jeremiah’s commissioning is in Jeremiah 1:4-10. In this passage, God directs Jeremiah to be a prophet to the nations — the non-Jews, the Gentiles.

Jeremiah 1:11-16: The Nation

Then later in Jeremiah 1:11-16 we have Jeremiah’s commissioning to the nation — Judah.

Summary

So, to summarize…

  • Jeremiah 1:4-10: Jeremiah and the Nations.
  • Jeremiah 1:11-16: Jeremiah and Judah.
