A Remnant Flees to Egypt

“A contingent of army officers who had not been captured will apparently fall under the influence of the Ammonites, who will persuade them to assassinate Gedaliah.  Their character is further revealed when they murder 70 innocent men, apparently without reason, and take captive their own countrymen at Mizpah.

Just when it appears that other former officers are about to right all the wrongs, they too exhibit wicked character; leading a whole remnant of Hebrews away to Egypt, including Jeremiah and Baruch.  So it is that in the very country against which he has brought such harsh judgments, Jeremiah finds himself once again crying out against idolatry and having to bring more rebuke and judgment.”

“What a disheartening experience this must be for Jeremiah — off in a foreign country, separated from his scattered family, and surrounded by idolatrous Hebrews who have not even begun to learn the lesson of Judah’s fall.  Now in his older years Jeremiah must indeed have a broken heart.  But surely in the kingdom of the Messiah about whom he has confidently prophesied he will receive great reward.”

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.”
