Questions about the Book of Jeremiah

Jeremiah is the twenty-fourth book of the bible. Jeremiah is sometimes called “the weeping prophet.” He prophesied in the days of Josiah, the son of Amon, and continued to prophesy up to the carrying away of Jerusalem captives. Jeremiah faithfully proclaimed the word of the Lord, calling on Jerusalem to repent and turn from their sins. When the remnant left in Judah, by Nebuchadnezzar fled to Egypt, they took Jeremiah with them, and he probably died there.
