What is this book about?
Judah’s rebellion had reached its zenith in Jeremiah’s day, which brought forth the specific prophecies of both destruction, fall, and exile; but also of great renewal and restoration in the coming New Covenant.
 
How does it point to Jesus?
Jesus, in offering His own blood as blood of the New Covenant, institutes Jeremiah 31:31, signaling not only to the disciples and faithful Jews, but to all that He is our restoration and redemption.
