Commentary by Dr. Drake Travis
Lord we heard your astonishing prophecy to restore and return gloriously with your people one day – for Jerusalem to be inhabited by a blessed and chosen people. We believe that for us still today – that we are destined for the New Jerusalem. Amen.
33 – Here we are into the second half of Jeremiah and it is good to remember that Judah was a tribe and a nation that enveloped Jerusalem. There was right about 400 years between David ruling there and Babylon breaking in to burn the city flat and haul Judah away in exile. There were 20 kings in that 400 year period and most were bad men. So how can there be a line of David that rules forever? how can there be any good news at all when the leaders were derelict most of the time? Still Jeremiah declares that God intends to heal and restore Judah…and Israel to the glory God intended. God will bring wealth and peace and abundance to them. ‘Hard to see that indeed with enemies at the gate, and it’s hard to believe that when the city’s destined to be laid to waste and consequently desolate for several decades. Nevertheless, life SHALL return to Judah. It has been prophesied. And it is stated for reiteration that there is a leader from the line of David who will come; He is the Righteous Branch. He will be bring justice and it will affect the whole earth. He is 28 generations following David as his 26th (generation) grandson. The family line is listed and counted in Matthew 1 if you care to brush up on this.
