LAMENTATIONS 2018 | DAY II

Read Lamentations one through five

We’re diving into our study in the book of Lamentations by doing a book overview study. These studies are vital to our understanding of the book on the whole – the historic setting in which it was written, the author and date of the writing, and the cultural setting of the author who wrote it. All of these elements help make up what the book is and how we should read it. It’s also an exercise in worship, as we seek to love God with all our minds by putting His Word at the forefront and pushing pause on any personal interpretation and application in our own lives.
