Jeremiah 32: Jeremiah Buys Land

Old Testament Seminary Student Study Guide, (2002), 163


Jeremiah 32 records that in order to impressively teach that the children of Israel would be gathered back to their promised lands, even after the Babylonian destruction, the Lord commanded the imprisoned Jeremiah to buy land. He then told Jeremiah to keep the title in a safe place as evidence of this prophecy. The power of the Babylonians made this seem impossible, but with God nothing is impossible (see v. 27). It is important to remember that with mortals many things seem impossible, but to an all-powerful God the words “Is there any thing too hard for me?” (Jeremiah 32:27) apply.
