This short chapter has three main purposes. First, the introduction provides an overview of the story told in Jeremiah 40–44, including the main lineaments of the plot and some of the major characters who appear in the drama. Since the story takes place after the main event of Jerusalem’s destruction, the account is sometimes overlooked by readers of this prophetic book. Second, the introduction also provides a short overview of narrative criticism as the methodology adopted in this study, with the suggestion that this particular approach is well suited for the kind of material the reader encounters in Jeremiah 40–44. Third, the introduction then summarizes some of the key highlights and areas of analysis in the forthcoming chapters, with a synopsis of each chapter provided for the reader’s convenience.

Keywords:   narrative criticism, prophetic literature, Jeremiah 40–44, destruction of Jerusalem, methodology, story overview
