Structure and Message of Lamentations

Lamentations Structure

Message of Lamentations

The ultimate end of sin and unfaithfulness to covenant is total and complete destruction, but there is hope for the repentant remnant because of the character of God who keeps His promises with His people.

Theology of Lamentations

  • The Ultimate Consequence of Sin is Total Destruction.
  • The Experience of Covenant Blessing, and favor and the responsibility that goes with that, make one more liable for judgment, not less
  • Judgment brings affliction to the faithful minority, but there is always hope because of God's character and covenant.
  • Sin can remove one from being under God’s protection and thus bring destruction and chaos.
  • The discipline of God is painful and has effects even beyond the unfaithful generation.
