The prophet Jeremiah
Jeremiah Lamenting the Destruction of Jerusalem
Imagine preaching for 40 years and no one listens. All you receive for your efforts is house arrest, public torture, the burning of your books, imprisonment and nearly drowning in a pit of slime. Welcome to the world of Jeremiah as he laments the destruction of the city and people he loved so much.
