False expectations exposed: The function of traditions in Jeremiah 7:1-15
In Jeremiah 7:1-15 various traditions are employed in different ways. The expectations based on the Zion Tradition, namely that Jerusalem is inviolable because of Jahweh’s presence, are exposed to be false. This is done with reference to the Sinai Tradition, accentuating that Jahweh's saving acts are not determined by his presence in the temple, but by Juda’s loyalty to the prescriptions of Sinai. Furthermore, the Conquest Tradition is used to describe the extent of the judgment in store for Juda, namely the loss of the land.
