Jeremiah Escapes Death

“After apparently having been released for a time from house arrest in the royal palace, Jeremiah is first imprisoned in a dungeon and then put down into an empty well, before being saved by, of all people, Zedekiah.  One gets the feeling that Zedekiah really does fear God and his prophet after all.  This is somewhat confirmed when Zedekiah approaches Jeremiah secretly to learn what God’s plans are.  Unfortunately, Zedekiah never accepts God’s words.”

The Great Deportation

“Upon the death of his father, eighteen-year-old Jehoiachin ascends the throne of Judah, but he reigns for only three months.  Nebuchadnezzar is not about to allow a second king of Judah to defy him, so he comes to lead the new king away as a captive.

Jehoiachin’s fate is linked to the fate of thousands of God’s people.  There have been many deportations already, and more will follow, but this is to be by far the greatest deportation of them all.  Significant among the royal and priestly captives is a man by the name of Ezekiel, who will soon be called by God to be a prophet among his fellow captives in Babylonia.”

Reign of Zedekiah

“With the great deportation under way and young King Jehoiachin being taken to Babylon, Nebuchadnezzar sets up Jehoiachin’s uncle Mattaniah to be a puppet king.  Nebuchadnezzar calls Mattaniah by the name of Zedekiah, and that is how he will be remembered throughout history.  The 11 years of his reign will come to a disastrous end with the fall of Jerusalem.”
