The function of the tradition of creation in Jeremiah
The purpose of this article is, firstly, to summarise Da Silva’s doctoral thesis, entitled. T h e function of the tradition of creation in Jeremiah’ and, secondly, to discuss the relevance of the conclusions reached in it. His examination of twelve pericopes from Jeremiah, referring to Israel’s tradition of creation, results in six conclusions. The issues on which they bear relevance are theology in general, the Christian’s faith, and the Christian’s testimony towards non-christians and regarding the ecological movement.
