Jeremiah: The movie

In a brief talk this morning, my colleague Doug Wilson highlighted the drama of the book of Jeremiah: Jeremiah stands against the religious and political elites of his time. He has a very controversial message; he doesn’t sound like a prophet; his message of surrender violates every instinct of the people of Jerusalem. His life doesn’t look blessed; he’s beaten and rejected and despised of men, thrown into a cistern. As Doug pointed out, we know that Jeremiah is the good guy when we start reading, but at the time it would all be very uncertain. Jeremiah looked like a kook to a lot of the people of Judah.

All of which means: There needs to be Jeremiah, the Movie. Aspiring filmmakers, take note.
