Jeremiah lived at a time of great significance in the history of Israel. There was a constant threat by the surrounding nations. During his forty years of prophetic ministry, the kingdom of Judah was ruled by five different kings. While the Israelites lived in fear of the neighboring countries, Jeremiah faithfully continued to speak God's Word to the king and everyone who would listen.
In Finding Jesus in Jeremiah, you will learn about salvation through faith, the Holy Spirit, unconditional love, God's promises, His righteousness, the covenants, the seed of Abraham, and much more.
Today, Jeremiah continues to be an inspiration and a teacher for all true followers of Christ. His is one of the Bible's four major prophetic books, and he has a vital message for all people.
Collections of traditional Spanish ballads were made in the early seventeenth century; some recorded directly from singers, others reworked by educated poets. So popular were these that Court poets composed ballads of their own. Most Spanish poetry of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries circulated in manuscript among a small coterie of wits and fellow poets, and it often contains references to contemporary events and people, sideswipes at institutions and individuals, and allusions to other writings of the time. The modern reader has to know about the people and events criticized and lampooned, and everything from municipal by-laws to contemporary painting can prove helpful. The traditional popular associations of the ballad also led to many poets combining in their poems the language of the street alongside that of polite society and the schoolroom.This volume discusses some of the problems encountered by anglophone students and teachers of literature when they turn to the Golden-Age ballad and offers informed guidance on how such poems might be read. The nine poems discussed have been chosen with such difficulties in mind and a strophe-by-strophe prose translation is provided for each, followed by a detailed critical analysis. It is edited by Nigel Griffin, Clive Griffin, Eric Southworth And Colin Thompson, all of Oxford University. The other contributors include: Oliver Noble-Wood, John Rutherford, and Ronald Truman.
