2016 Session 16: Circumsion

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally focuses on the language found in Bible. What does it mean when the prophet Jeremiah tells us to have a “circumcised heart?” Inevitably, the subject brings up the subject of obedience, and the blessings that result. The same discussion reminds us: disobedience brings judgement.

Jeremiah 4:4, ; Matthew 13; Deuteronomy 10:16; 30:6; Galatians 6; Romans 2:28; 8:9; Hosea 10:12; Proverbs 11:18-21 John 15; Philippians 12:12-13; Psalm 37

2016 Session 9: Sheep-Eating Shepherds

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally takes up the curious notion of shepherds who eat the sheep. It’s a strange idea, and one we’ve been exploring for the last few weeks as we’ve examined Jeremiah’s take on bad shepherding. The subject isn’t limited to Jeremiah. Ezekiel 34:16 suggests that God will feed His sheep, but to those who’ve been bad shepherds, He will feed them judgement ( Ezekiel 34:16)

Jeremiah 23:36; 15:19; 6:16; 23:1,6; 10:1; 2:8; Ezekiel 34:10-16; 34:23-26; John 10:1,10; 10:8:44; 10:10; Matthew 7:15

2016 Session 8: Force & Severity

“With force and severity you have dominated them.” In this session, Dr. Wave continues our discussion of bad shepherds, and God’s attitude toward them. “Their dreams are not from the Lord. I didn’t send them, nor command them.”

Jer 3; 23:14-40; Jude; 1 Peter 5; Matthew 22:37; Luke 15; Ezekiel 34:4-14; John 2:1; 13

2015 Session 1: Relationship

In this, the first class session of 2016, Dr. Nunnally continues with our study of Jeremiah. The Old Testament prophet pursues an obvious line of reasoning. Our primary task, spiritually, is to pursue a “relationship” with our Heavenly Father.

“My Father, you are the friend of my youth.”  Jeremiah 3:4

Jeremiah 3:4; 3:18-19; 31:9; Deuteronomy 24; Isaiah 54:5; 61:10; 62:4; 63:16; 64:8; John 3:29; 14:1; Psalm 68:5; 2:7; Exodus 4: 23-24; John 8

2015 Session 44: Covenantal Betrayal

Dr. Nunnally directs our attention to Israel’s pending exile (587 BCE). Jeremiah elaborates on Israel’s shame and covenantal disobedience. God’s expectations have been clearly understood. “If you disobey, I’ll withheld the rain. If you obey, I’ll send the rain.” Betray the covenant and “exile” is the result.

Jeremiah 2:37; 2:16; 3:1; 14:3:3-4; 2 Samuel 15:30; Job; Leviticus 26; Psalm 140:5-9; Deuteronomy 24:1-4; 2 Kings 22:8

2015 Session 17: Pursue Abomination— Achieve Abomination

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally directs our attention to the validity of God’s plan for successful living. “If you pursue abomination, you will achieve abomination. I you pursue emptiness, you will be empty. If you pursue a reprobate lifestyle, you will be turned over to a reprobate mind. But if you pursue righteousness, you will reap abundant life. God’s commandments are good.”

Jeremiah 2:5,7,8,19; Deuteronomy 4:8; 7:26; 10:13; Romans 1:28; Psalm 18:7; 129:39; 1 John 5:2; 14:15;  15:10

2015 Session 6: Don’t Pray

In today’s class, Dr. Nunnally reminds us that there are times when God’s Word instructs us “not to pray.” The concept seems alien to the way believers practice their faith, and the discussion takes us back to both Jeremiah and Hosea. The unusual commandment from the Father relates to the narrative found in both books. The betrothal metaphor is also a continuing part of our examination of Jeremiah, where the prophets use the language of marriage to mirror God’s relationship with His people.

Romans 8; Jeremiah 2:2; 7:16; 1 John 5:16; Hosea 2:14,18,19,20; 2:1; 11:1,4; 13:4,5,2; Genesis 19

2015 Session 5: Hosea – Jeremiah

In today’s session, Dr. Nunnally focuses on the language of the prophets, and the recurring emphasis on the concepts of the “bridegroom” and the “bride.” Both Old and New Testaments portray “covenant” in terms of betrothal. An offshoot of this conversation takes up the language of Hosea as contrasted to that of Jeremiah. “These ideas didn’t come out of thin air. They are seen as recurring themes in scripture, anchored in God’s revelation of Himself and His relationship to His children.”

Jeremiah 2:1; 31:32; Matthew 22:37; Revelation 19:6-7; John 3:29; 2 Corinthians 11:2; Ephesians 5;23; Isaiah 40:3; Hosea 2:14-16; 11:1-4; 2 Samuel 14; 1 Samuel 17

Homework: Read Hosea, looking for references to the Pentateuch and the Exodus.
