JEREMIAH 35: It’s not their signature but God’s that makes us through. Respect God.
The challenge in the book of Jeremiah as we had earlier noted is the unchronological arrangement of his chapters but the message is really arranged. In these ends of the kingdom in times of Zedekiah, Jeremiah brings back the times of King Jehoiakim about 18 years back (609-597 BC) when the event described in the chapter happened. As observed by the writers of Wiersbe Bible commentary,
Jeremiah might have considered this event in these times simply because it was fit to compare the obedience of this clan to their father and the disobedience of Judah to God, a thing I recommended as good arrangement of the message.
