Jeremiah preached during a time when Jerusalem was in despair and when all seemed to be going wrong. He witnessed all three of Babylon’s invasions and the fall of Jerusalem. Jeremiah is called the “weeping prophet” because his prophecies are filled with tears and lamentation. He foretold Israel’s return from captivity after 70 years. Like Isaiah, Jeremiah wrote several prophecies of the coming Messiah .This message of hope would be not only for Judah, but also for the whole world.
