Jeremiah type of Christ

Consider Jeremiah as a type, or historical prophecy, of our Lord Jesus Christ:

In his birth and calling: Jer 1:5,9.

As a lamb brought to the slaughter: Jer 11:19; cp Isa 53:7; 1Pe 2:20-24; Joh 1:29.

Jeremiah incurred special displeasure from his own relatives: Jer 12:6; cp Psa 69:8; Joh 1:11.

Jeremiah faced deep-rooted wickedness in the nation, especially from the priests and elders. Nevertheless he made constant efforts to reform a cynical, corrupt priesthood and to cleanse the Temple of its idolatry: Jer 7--9.
