For more context before you begin studying, read this introduction to the book of Jeremiah.
Reading about Jesus praying in the Garden of Gethsemane is painful. The night before Jesus was crucified "he fell with his face to the ground and prayed, 'My Father, if it is possible, may this cup be taken from me. Yet not as I will, but as you will'" (Mt 26:39). What was the cup Jesus was praying about? It no doubt had to do with the upcoming experience of the cross.
When we turn to this passage in Jeremiah, we can begin to get a glimpse of the pain Jesus must have felt. Jeremiah writes about the cup of God's wrath that was to be given to all the nations of the earth in order to bring judgment. The cup Jeremiah writes of was too much for the nations to drink. How then was Jesus Christ alone able to stand it? As you study this difficult passage, keep in mind the physical, spiritual and eternal issues at stake.
Violence is all around us. What wars or other forms of violence are on your mind as you begin? Take time to pray about the situations that concern you.
