The books of Jeremiah and Lamentations cannot be separated from the political conditions of ancient Judah. Beginning with the righteous king Josiah, who ushered in a time of glorious but brief religious reform, Jeremiah reflects the close tie between spiritual and political prosperity or disaster, between the actions and heart of Judah and her kings and their fortunes as a nation/5(28).

The Book of Lamentations. The Book of Lamentations is a collection of five poems that serve as an anguished response to the destruction of Jerusalem in B.C., after a long siege by the invading Babylonian army.

(See 2 Kgs 25 for a prose account of the fall of Jerusalem.) Although the poems are traditionally ascribed to the prophet Jeremiah, this is unlikely.

The book of Jeremiah has 66 passages from Deuteronomy, and also references to Job and Psalms (in effect), and lots of indebtedness, in the minds of some scholars, to Hosea.

Ketubim). There they belong to the so-called "rolls" (Hebr. Megillot), which are read on certain festive days. The fundamental issue in the book of Jeremiah is whether the people will be faithful to God in the midst of a difficult environment.

Jeremiah is concerned with faithfulness in every aspect of life, including religion, family, military, government, agriculture and other spheres of life and work.

We face a similar issue as workers today. The book is a series of book of Jeremiah and Lamentations book theological laments centered on the fall of Jerusalem.

The Book of Lamentations has been billed as “a natural supplement” to the Book of Jeremiah. Some view the last chapter of Jeremiah as an introduction to Lamentations.

The Septuagint (the Greek translation of the Old Testament) gives this prefix: “And it. The language used in Lamentations closely parallels that used by Jeremiah in his much larger prophetic book (compare with Jer.

; with Jer. ; and with Jer.18; with Jer. ; with Jer. Both Jewish and Christian traditions hold that Jeremiah is the author of Lamentations.
