putting Jeremiah in his place

Our Bible study of Jeremiah began this morning.  So, when thinking of putting Jeremiah in his place, we don't want to add to the grief he receives throughout the book that bears his name.  No, it's a question of locating him in history.  That's why we begin with 2 Kings 22-23.

Consider:  King Josiah of Judah has ordered sweeping reformation upon the discovery of "the book of the law."  The Assyrians are weakening, and the Egyptians and Babylonians are swooping from opposite directions, like vultures drawn to a carcass.  We'll revisit the accompanying timeline in the future.

(I suppose it should be added that these are not universally agreed-upon dates!)
