Jeremiah

Jeremiah called the "weeping prophet", was one of the major prophets of the Hebrew Bible. According to Jewish tradition, Jeremiah authored the Book of Jeremiah, the Books of Kings and the Book of Lamentations, with the assistance and under the editorship of Baruch ben Neriah, his scribe and disciple. In addition to detailing many statements attributed by Jeremiah to God, the book of Jeremiah goes into detail regarding physical actions taken by Jeremiah as well as actions which happen to him. Greater detail is known about Jeremiah's life than for that of any other prophet. Judaism considers the Book of Jeremiah part of its canon, regards Jeremiah as the second of the major prophets. Christianity and Islam regard Jeremiah as a prophet, he is quoted in the New Testament and his narrative is given in Islamic tradition. Jeremiah's ministry was active from the thirteenth year of Josiah, king of Judah, until after the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of Solomon's Temple in 587 BC; this period spanned the reigns of five kings of Judah: Josiah, Jehoiakim and Zedekiah.

Jeremiah was the son of a kohen from the Benjamite village of Anathoth. The difficulties he encountered, as described in the books of Jeremiah and Lamentations, have prompted scholars to refer to him as "the weeping prophet". Jeremiah was called to prophetic ministry c. 626 BC by YHWH to give prophecy of Jerusalem's destruction that would occur by invaders from the north. This was because Israel had been unfaithful to the laws of the covenant and had forsaken God by worshiping Baal. Jeremiah condemned people burning their children as offerings to Moloch; this nation had deviated so far from God that they had broken the covenant, causing God to withdraw his blessings. Jeremiah was guided by God to proclaim that the nation of Judah would be faced with famine and taken captive by foreigners who would exile them to a foreign land; the prophetess Huldah was a relative and contemporary of Jeremiah while the prophet Zephaniah was his mentor. According to Jeremiah 1:2–3, Yahweh called Jeremiah to prophetic ministry in about 626 BC, about five years before Josiah king of Judah turned the nation toward repentance from idolatrous practices.

According to the Books of Kings, Jeremiah, Josiah's reforms were insufficient to save Judah and Jerusalem from destruction, because of the sins of Manasseh, Josiah's grandfather, Judah's return to idolatry. Such was the lust of the nation for false gods that after Josiah's death, the nation would return to the gods of the surrounding nations. Jeremiah was said to have been appointed to reveal the sins of the people and the coming consequences. Jeremiah did not know how to speak. However, the Lord insisted that Jeremiah go and speak, he touched Jeremiah's mouth to place the word of the Lord there. God told Jeremiah to "Get yourself ready!" The character traits and practices Jeremiah was to acquire are specified in Jeremiah 1 and include not being afraid, standing up to speak, speaking as told, going where sent. Since Jeremiah is described as emerging well trained and literate from his earliest preaching, the relationship between him and the Shaphan family has been used to suggest that he may have trained at the scribal school in Jerusalem over which Shaphan presided.

In his early ministry, Jeremiah was a preaching prophet, preaching throughout Israel. He condemned idolatry, the greed of priests, false prophets. Many years God instructed Jeremiah to write down these early oracles and his other messages. Jeremiah's ministry prompted plots against him. Unhappy with Jeremiah's message for concern that it would shut down the Anathoth sanctuary, his priestly kin and the men of Anathoth conspired to kill him. However, the Lord revealed the conspiracy to Jeremiah, protected his life, declared disaster for the men of Anathoth; when Jeremiah complains to the Lord about this persecution, he is told that the attacks on him will become worse. A priest Pashur the son of ben Immer, a temple official in Jerusalem, had Jeremiah beaten and put in the stocks at the Upper Gate of Benjamin for a day. After this, Jeremiah expresses lament over the difficulty that speaking God's word has caused him and regrets becoming a laughingstock and the target of mockery, he recounts how if he tries to shut the word of the Lord inside and not mention God's name, the word becomes like fire in his heart and he is unable to hold it in.

Whilst Jeremiah was prophesying the coming destruction, a number of other prophets were prophesying peace. Jeremiah spoke against these other prophets. According to the book of Jeremiah, during the reign of King Zedekiah, The Lord instructed Jeremiah to make a yoke of the message that the nation would be subject to the king of Babylon; the prophet Hananiah opposed Jeremiah's message. He took the yoke off Jeremiah's neck, broke it, prophesied to the priests and all the people that within two years the Lord would break the yoke of the king of Babylon, but the Lord spoke to Jeremiah saying "Go and speak to Hananiah saying, you have broken the yoke of wood, but you have made instead a yoke of iron." Jeremiah was sympathetic to, as well as descended from, the Northern Kingdom. Many of his first reported oracles are about, addressed to, the Israelites at Samaria, he resembles the northern prophet Hosea, in his use of language, examples of God's relationship to Israel. Hosea seems to have been the

The shop was uniquely gifted by being located just around the corner from Philadelphia's premier social center for Black professionals and business leaders, The Philadelphia Pyramid Club; this allowed him to have frequent exchanges with his father's clientele which included prominent civic and social figures such as Presiding AME Bishop D. Ward Nichols, Rev William H. Gray Sr, A. Leon Higginbotham Jr, Raymond Pace Alexander, Cecil B. Moore, Reverend Leon Sullivan. All of this exposed Jenkins early on to the meaning of civic leadership, he joined the NAACP Youth Council and frequented Philadelphia's legendary Fellowship House. Prior to the advent court- ordered busing to racially integrate public schools, Jenkins’ parents creatively engaged in private " affirmative action" to enroll him in a series of better public schools that were beyond his racially concentrated neighborhood in the Girard Avenue area of North Philadelphia.

The first was his elementary school, Thaddeus Stevens School of Observation, a city-wide magnet school designed to train primary school teachers. This was followed by enrollment in Jay Cooke Junior High School, Central High School. While at Central, his extracurriculars not only included varsity athletics, but prize-winning debate and oratorical competitions as well. In the Fall of 1956, Jenkins was recruited as a four-year scholarship student to Howard University in Washington D. C. majoring in Political Science and Philosophy. In his senior year, Jenkins was elected student body president and joined the intercollegiate debate team, co-led by prize-winning writer, Toni Morrison. At Howard, he was influenced by his fortuitous one-one interactions with the University's leading lights such as scholar-poet Sterling A. Brown, theologian-orator Mordecai Wyatt Johnson, historian-Africanist Rayford Logan, philosophy professor William Banner. With a keen interest in international affairs, Jenkins spent his sophomore and junior year summers abroad at no expense in France and Yugoslavia understanding global conflicts and cultural diversity under the program, Experiment in International Living.

In 1960 he was inducted into graduated Magna Cum Laude. Thereafter, he was elected by unanimous membership acclamation to the office of National Affairs Vice President of the United States National Student Association, comprising some 400 college and university government associations.
