Jeremiah-Ezekiel: Human Failure and Divine Success – A Study in Contrast

Examine the prophets whose ministry connected to Jerusalem's fall to the Babylonians, the study of a threat in Jeremiah and a historical event in Ezekiel.


In this course, Jeremiah-Ezekiel: Human Failure and Divine Success—A Study in Contrasts, students will learn about two prophets whose ministry related to Jerusalem’s fall to the Babylonians. This unthinkable event—that the city where God lived in His temple could be destroyed—is studied as a threat in Jeremiah and as a historical reality in Ezekiel. Both the miserable failure of God’s people and God’s success in judging and yet preserving His people are surveyed in this course that studies these two prophets.

  • This was an in-depth course that helped fill in knowledge gaps for me.

  • Very historical view of the Bible

    — Esosa, United States (US)
  • Dr Stuart has presented an excellent introduction to two major prophets, giving good summaries of the main ideas in each segment of each book, as well as the overarching themes found throughout each book. I must salute him for condensing so much information on the Old Testament canon into a single lecture, which incidentally is the toughest in this course. Nevertheless, one can master much of this excursus if one puts in effort to revise carefully. A course to be highly recommended.
