Joseph's Dream of OT Prophecy

Pastor Baker
Why should Matthew 2:18/Jeremiah
31:15 be a prophecy of Jesus?
Matthew 2:13-21
  It's a prophecy of sorrow 
  turning of Joy because the 
  Exile is ending.
  Jeremiah 31:10-17
A. The days are coming when I 
   will deal with you 
   Jeremiah 31:27-30
B. The days are coming when I no
   longer lead you like a child.
   Jeremiah 31:31-34
   Hoseah 11:1-4
C. The days are coming when my
   law will be in your hearts!
   Jeremiah 31:33-34a
Is there confirmation that 
Jeremiah 31 is about Jesus?
D. The days are coming when 
   forgiveness of sin will come
   through a better mediator of a
   better covenant.
   Hebrews 8:6-12
Matthew 21:16-18
