Jeremiah

Unique and Unusual

The book of Jeremiah that we read is apparently an expanded, second version of a destroyed first draft.  King Jehoiakim, angry with Jeremiah for his dire prophecies, cut the scroll with a penknife and “cast it into the fire that was on the hearth” (36:23).  At God’s command, Jeremiah produced a second scroll with additional material (36:32).
