Abstract

Many commentators point to Jeremiah 29 as an Old Testament blueprint for urban mission. But an examination of the passage in context demonstrates the need for deeper hermeneutical reflection concerning the application of this OT text to the church. It is only in viewing the results of an exegetical analysis through the christological lens of the NT that the passage can function analo- gously as a part of a larger biblical theology of mission.
