14.00 – 15.30 (UK time)
Rev Dr Anders Berquist
Of all the prophetic books, the Book of Jeremiah is the one that is most consistently attentive to the experience of being a prophet. What is it like to hear God, and to have to pass on God’s word? What is it like when the message is one of defeat and disaster? How does the prophet charged with this message fit (or not) into the politics and society of their day? The later editors of the book have framed it so as to explore just these questions – which this study session will open up through a close reading of selected texts, including Jer. 1.1-19, 15.10-21, 17.14-18, 20.7-18, and 36.1-32.
Revd Dr Anders is the Vicar of St John’s Wood Parish He is a member of the Church of England’s Liturgical Commission, and is involved at national level in ecumenical work with the Scandinavian and Baltic churches.
