Title Review

Thomas Babu analyses the text of the ‘Confessions of Jeremiah’, emphasising their peculiarity, particularly the unbreakable relationship between humans and the one God which means salvation for Israel and the neighbouring nations. He explores the dimension of hope as playing an important role in understanding the whole process of prophetical thought in the Confessions. Beginning with an overview on the ‘Book of Jeremiah’ which includes study of its language and different methods of interpretation of it, he analyses the dimension of hope by referring to specific verses in the text after translating them. He scrutinises the thematic links and connected motifs that reveal the unity of the Confessions. He lays special emphasis on understanding the meaning of the term nqm, loosely taken to mean revenge or vengeance, in the context of the Confessions. The Confessions are also compared to the Psalms, particularly those relating to the laments of an individual.
