Yirmiyahu follows Hashem's command though it seems to contradict reality, and then asks Hashem for an explanation. Hashem explains that though there will be a terrible exile, the Jews will return to Eretz Yizrael and once again property will be bought and sold here. This class includes a vort by Rabbi Soloveitchik comparing Yirmiyahu's dilemma to that of Avraham Avinu before the Akeida, as well as an explanation of Hashem's 13 Attributes of Mercy, which appear in this perek in truncated form.Perek 32: Contradictory ProphesiesDescriptionYirmiyahuRabbi Avishai David2009-06-07 54:32

In this Torah shiur (class) on Sefer Yirmiyahu, Rabbi Avishai David teaches perek (chapter) 19. Rabbi David begins with an examination of the Malbim, who suggests that Yirmiyahu was punished and hit because he did not fulfill the requirements of his prophesy exactly. Rabbi David discusses this issue thorugh the comments of the Nafesh Hachaim, the Abarbanel, and the Rambam in Morah Nevuchim (Guide to the Perplexed). Rabbi David ends the class with an examination of the pasuk that speaks of the korbanot (sacrifices) of the Jewish people of the time of Yirmiyahu, as they relate to Akeidat Yitzchak.Perek 19: Yirmiyahu's SufferingDescriptionYirmiyahuRabbi Avishai David2006-08-18 54:49
