Jeremiah 32 & 33

  1. What was Jeremiah’s response to God’s command to purchase land:
    (a) immediately (32:9-12), and
    (b) subsequently (32:16-25)?
    What has this to teach us when faced by perplexities of Christian obedience? What was God’s answer to Jeremiah’s prayer?
    What was the significance of his being commanded to buy land at such a time?
  2. What blessings are promised in chapter 33?
    Which of them are for us also under the new covenant?
    E.g., with 33:3, cf. Eph. 1:17-19a; 1 Cor. 2:9, 10.


33:1. ‘The courtyard of the guard’: Jeremiah’s friends would be able to visit him, but he would not go outside the court.
