The Writing of Scripture

Jeremiah 36 is a fascinating read. You will discover that the first thirty-five chapters of the Book of Jeremiah came as a result of the prophet having to write it a second time. Read the whole chapter to find out what happened to his first writing. The chapter begins by saying, “Now it came to pass in the fourth year of Jehoiakim the son of Josiah, king of Judah, that this word came to Jeremiah from the LORD, saying: ‘Take a scroll of a book and write on it all the words that I have spoken to you against Israel, against Judah, and against all the nations, from the day I spoke to you, from the days of Josiah even to this day'” (Jeremiah 36:1-2).
God told Jeremiah to write down what he had been speaking. Then God wanted the prophet to have it read to the current king of Judah, who did not treat that initial writing of the Book of Jeremiah very well.
However, no man can destroy the word of God, for He will simply reproduce it again and add more to it.
Notice the different attitudes toward the Scriptures in Jeremiah 36 and figure out where you fit in.
