Discussion for Jeremiah 36

  • Clint
    This also shows that God was the author of the bible. And he told man not to add to his book or to take away from it so if we are to be his people we must be carfull what we say or quoat . also what we call his word and what we call his Bible he only wrote one.
  • Andrew
    Deleting or adding to the word of God is what this chapter is about -- not even a king is exempt from severe punishment.
  • Frank
    Doubting God is fatal. Jehoiakim doubted God, the Prophet (Jeremiah) and the Scribe (Baruch), and acted harshly by burning his own life and safety on the fire. Be ware of prejudice.
