We may be in a mega-Jeremiah time of exile.
Jeremiah’s time was one in which we were to work for the good of the city, and also prepare to return, for Jeremiah bought a plot of land in Jerusalem.
At that time, it was the Axial Age. Jaspers.
Confucius, Buddha, Lao-Tse, Greek Philosophy all emerged.
As the Cosmopolitan Age of the Diaspora happened during and after Jeremiah’s time, and this and other things prepared the way for the spread of the Gospel, are we shown that we must do the same type of thing, that we must spread out into these other cultures with the right message (work for the good of the city…) for the Constantine-ization of all these Axial Age systems?
Someone should preach for a year on Jeremiah's @50 prophecies.
