Biblical Outline: Jeremiah

Peace & Blessings Beloved,

TGBTG for allowing us to see another day. I pray all is well with you and yours, and that your week has been fruitful & blessed thus far.


In this Series, we are going to further our in-depth study of each book of the Holy Bible, breaking each book into the major themes and topics contained therein. Today we'll outline the twenty-fourth book of the Bible, Jeremiah.



Outline

Unlike Ezekiel, the oracles in Jeremiah are not arranged in chronological order. Had they been so arranged, the sequence of sections within the book would have been approximately as follows: 1:1 -- 7:15; chapter 26; 7:16 -- 20:18; chapter 25; chapters 46 - 51; 36:1-8; chapter 45; 36:9-32; chapter 35; chapters 21 - 24; chapter 27 - 31; 34:1-7; 37:1-10; 34:8-22; 37:11 -- 38:13; 39:15-18; chapters 32 - 33; 38:14 -- 39:14; 52:1-30; chapters 40 - 44; 52:31-34.

P.S- If you have not given your life to Jesus Christ, I implore you to take the time to do so right now. Use John 3:16 & Romans 10:9-10 as a foundation for making your confession of faith. And use Ephesians 2:1-10 to provide proper context for your salvation
