This is a 27 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – Old Testament Prophets – Jeremiah. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed.
Jeremiah, often called the weeping prophet, the son of a Levitical priest, was likely born between 650 and 645 BC. He was from the small village, about 3 miles northeast of Jerusalem in the territory of Benjamin (Jere. 1:1). It was through Jeremiah’s childhood training for holy service in the priesthood that God began grooming him for his future role.
God called Jeremiah when he was still a youth, (v. 2). In fact, God had already set Jeremiah apart for the office of a prophet before he was even born, to take God’s words to all Israel and to the nations (v. 5). God gave Jeremiah the overview of his prophetic ministry: “Behold, I have put My words in your mouth. See, I have this day set you over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out and to pull down, to destroy and to throw down, to build and to plant” (v. 9-10). This meant that God had appointed Jeremiah to proclaim the destruction and building of nations that would eventually lead to the Kingdom of God.
Jeremiah served as one of God’s prophets through the rule of 5 kings of Judah (Josiah, Jehoahaz, Jehoiakim, Jehoiachin and Zedekiah). He even continued to plead God’s case against Judah during the time of Jerusalem’s destruction by the Babylonians in 586 B.C. (Jere. 1:3, 52:7-11). His prophetic ministry extended over a period of more than 40 years, during which he wrote both Jeremiah and Lamentations. Contemporary prophets during the time of Jeremiah included Zephaniah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Daniel and Ezekiel.
Prophets of God often performed a dual role. One was to warn a wicked nation of God’s judgments while calling on them to repent and turn from their sins. And the other was to build up and encourage the faithful of that time as well as us today to remain steadfast in living godly lives and to stay close to God to weather the increase in wickedness.
Jeremiah was often inspired to look beyond the distressing scenes of the present to the hope of a bright future when God’s people would return from the land of the enemy back to their homeland (Jere. 31:12). Christians believe, the final fulfillment will come when Jesus Christ returns to establish the Kingdom of God.
