Jeremiah: Looking Back, Looking Forward - A New Covenant (Part 1)

Sunday, 9 August 2020 // God's Story: Old Testament


From Egypt, to the wilderness, to the conquest of Canaan, to the reigns of David and Solomon – God was with Israel all of these days!

But Israel whored themselves to other gods.

Their priests did not know God. Their prophets prophesied by Baal. Their kings did what was evil in the sight of God.

Israel was unfaithful.

Jeremiah looks at Israel's covenant unfaithfulness and proclaims God's unavoidable judgment upon them. The israelites are called to walk into the hands of God's judgment and yet find hope, find salvation.......through judgment.

This sermon was preached by our pastor-in-training, Jerome Leng, as part of our sermon series on biblical theology, "God's Story".

Please note that all the audio for our sermons is recorded live and only very lightly edited. From time to time you will hear the preacher making off-the-sermon comments or silences that come with this context. These include: the preacher making a wordless gesture or action to the audience, dropping and picking up something, a blooper that disrupts the flow of the sermon, and even a power outage! Thank you for understanding. We are working on uploading video for all the sermons that work better on video. Keep growing under the Word; may God bless His church.
