Prophet Jeremiah

31 “Behold, the days are coming, says the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah— 32 not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt, My covenant which they broke, though I was a husband to them,[a] says the Lord.Jeremiah 31:31-32 (new covonant)

He has been a passionate defender for our "God-given right to enjoy the gifts that nature has bestowed."

He has been a fervent anti-roads campaigner who has taken action against environmental spoilers since the age of six

He compared God to a potter. Like a potter reshaping a flawed work YHWH would mold the nation in his hands. Unless the people repent God would break the nation using punishment. Dramatically he shattered a jug in front of the elders and priests as a warning. His message was ignored and Jerusalem fell to Babylon but during that Jeremiah spoke of new covenant with the Lord ( Jer 31:31-34 ). This passage gave hope to the Chosen People.

Prophet Jerimiah

His life had it’s ups and downs, drama, faith and doubts, struggles with God, suffering at the hands of kings, and loneliness. His message shouted the love of a God who desperately wanted the chosen people to repent before catastrophe struck the nation. He became a living symbol of God’s message that slaughter and famine will soon visit jerusalem. God’s involvement in Jeremiah's life are similar to the lives of John the baptist and Jesus.Both accomplished what people would call “impossible” without God.He is like jesus by the fact that they received their vocation at birth, had fellow citizens and family members rejected them and their message, wept over jerusalem and spoke of new covenant.
