Uncovering Sefer Yirmiyahu: An Archaeological, Geographical, Historical Perspective by Rabbi Yehuda Landy
Rabbi Y. Landy’sUncovering Sefer Yirmiyahu is not just another commentary. It raises the reader to a new level of understanding by synchronizing Tanach and Chazal with archaeological evidence and modern scientific research. It enters the ancient world, providing a broader picture of the events that led to the destruction of the First Beis HaMikdash. The author also refers to othersifrei Tanach contemporary to Yirmiyahu HaNavi, and thereby paints a broad political picture. Taken into account is not only the situation in the Kingdom of Yehudah, but also the consequences of the king’s decisions, with regard to the neighboring countries.
