God’s judgment and compassion in Jeremiah, with Andrew Shead @ Moore College

What does it mean for God to be judge? How does this square with the biblical picture of God as compassionate? Sometimes we can adopt a one-dimensional view of God—a view that assumes that either God is wrathful, or that God is compassionate, but that he cannot be both. I chat with Andrew Shead, head of the Old Testament Department at Moore College, about the picture of God presented in the prophetic book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah gives us a rich, multi-dimensional view of God, whose judgment and compassion appear together in surprising but powerful ways that both fill out and foreshadow the Lord Jesus Christ.
