Fall of Jerusalem

“The end has finally come.  Plagued by famine, drought, and pestilence from within, and besieged by the Babylonian hordes from without, the City of David finally falls.  The historical record is mercifully brief in its account, as if the shame of it all forbids greater mention.  With the fall now an undeniable reality, the final chapter of the glorious era of Israel comes to a close, and the prophets of God are regrettably vindicated.”

Gedaliah and Jeremiah

“God reassured Jeremiah that he would be saved.  Working through Nebuchadnezzar and his officers, God now fulfills his promise.  Jeremiah’s future is about to cross paths with a man named Gedaliah, whom Nebuchadnezzar appoints as governor over the people left behind.”

“If the picture of a sword fails to get Judah’s attention, the following allegory certainly ought to.  In all of Scripture there is probably no more graphic an indictment.  Modern readers are almost offended by the candid exposure of two promiscuous sisters, representing Israel and Judah.  One gets at least some idea of the degree to which God himself is offended by his people’s infidelity.”

Read:  Ezekiel 23

“God feels deeply the shame an disgrace that his ‘bride’ has brought him.  Her disrespect for his spiritual leadership, her chasing after material satisfaction, and her many adulteries with lesser gods have left him no choice.  Israel must be put away until she repents.  The time has come.  Even now it begins.”

Siege of Jerusalem

“It is not known exactly when Zedekiah first gets the foolish notion to rebel against Nebuchadnezzar but when he does rebel, Nebuchadnezzar responds in predictable fashion by entering Judah with his powerful Babylonian army and laying siege to its cities, including Jerusalem.”
