- Ch. 30. Anticipatory of Jesus' final return. Verses 8-17: promise of restoration, but judgment (to them and their captors). Verse 9: foreshadow of Christ. Verse 13: see Is. 53:5.
- 31:1-9. Mention of Ephraim (v. 9); at this time, no northern kingdom - looking beyond exile to Christ. Verse 5 - reference to restoration, including Samaria. Israelites --> Samaritans + Jews. Jesus talks to Samaritan woman; Good Samaritan story. Acts 8 - Philip preaching the gospel in Samaria. Acts 1:9 - Samaria and ends of the earth. Jew --> Samaritan --> God fearers. Acts 13 - our (Gentiles') Pentecost.
- 31:15. Foreshadowing Matthew 2:18 - Herod killing children.
- 31:31-34. => Hebrews 8:8-12, 10:16-17 (longest section quoted in NT). Covenant - has to do with promise - God's part, none of ours, brought by the death of its Maker (Christ). Lord/husband - same word - baal - "torah" on their hearts - whole word - law + gospel. Heb. 10:16 - Holy Spirit says "I will make covenant." Christ fulfills covenant. Father makes covenant in Jeremiah. Jer. 33:17 - no lack of King or Priest => Jesus.
