By Mark Roncace

The booklet bargains a narratological and intertextual interpreting of Jeremiah 37:1 to 40:6, a textual content that includes the dynamic interplay among the prophet Jeremiah and King Zedekiah within the context of occasions surrounding the autumn of Jerusalem. whereas there were many literary stories of biblical texts, there was little such paintings at the narratives within the booklet of Jeremiah. This truth is impressive because the Jeremianic tales are narrated in a full of life and complex demeanour, and comprise advanced characters and bright discussion and motion, corresponding to texts within the fundamental historical past that have acquired even more literary recognition.

Jeremiah is the embattled prophet of God; but every now and then he looks misleading and manipulative, extra taken with his personal health than that of the folk, and his message may be ambiguous and after all isn't totally right. Zedekiah, for his half, seems receptive to Jeremiah's observe and protects the prophet from others who may damage him; but he's too irresolute to take any motion to avoid wasting the town. the anomaly within the portrayals of either figures is extra constructed via intertextual connections. Jeremiah might be in comparison to Moses, the Rabshakeh, Daniel, Joseph, Samuel, Nathan, and Micaiah, whereas Zedekiah may be in comparison to the monarchs that correspond to those figures (Pharaoh, Hezekiah, Saul, David, and Ahab).
