Baruch’s Great Test of Faith
JERUSALEM - During the 1970s, two bullae (clay seal stamps) turned up on the antiquities market. These items had an identical impression, made by the same seal stamp. They read: “Belonging to Berechiahu, son of Neriahu, the Scribe.” Or in its simplified biblical name form: Baruch, son of Neriah.This man is known to us as the chief scribe of Jeremiah the prophet. He had the critical task of preserving the book of Jeremiah for us today; a work that came with huge challenges.On today’s program, Brent Nagtegaal discusses the critical test of faith that qualified Baruch for his role as Jeremiah’s scribe.
