As a result I hope we can bring the pages of the alive and see more of their relevance to us today.
At least I'm hoping that those of you who are interested will all help me with this.
- I intend to look at the political arena at the time.
- I would like some help with the 'religious' politics too - ie history of Priesthood vs Kings, Israel vs Judah up to this time in history (if/where relevant)
- A timeline for who was doing what around this time would be useful.
Jeremiah was contemporary with a good number of the other prophets whose work we have in the Bible.
- Maps are always a help, gives us more meat to the bones.
(I would like to be methodical here, perhaps the new ways to view threads (ie trees) could help us.)
Ultimately I would like to see the information gathered, as a wiki style page/paper.
I would also like this to be an ongoing project so feel free to give me nudge/poke/kick every now and again!!
