Christmas Through the Eyes of Jeremiah

The Priest-King


  • Promises Not Forgotten
  • An Eternal King, Eternal Priest
  • Our Place in These Promises   

Questions for Further Study or Group Discussion:

  1. Read Jeremiah 33:10-18. What is promised in these verses? How are the singing in verse 11 and the prosperity of 12-13 connected with the “righteous Branch” of verse 15?
  2. Why might the Israelites think that God would forget or neglect his promise with David (cf. 2 Samuel 7)? What is the significance of the imagery of a “Branch springing up”?
  3. Consider the name given to Jerusalem in verse 16, “The Lord is our righteousness,” in light of 1 Corinthians 1:30 and 2 Corinthians 5:21. What is the salvation “Judah” will experience? How does Jesus fulfill this?
  4. Are these promises only for descendants of Abraham or are they for all of the nations? Explain.
