Jeremiah
Synopsis
The mission of a prophet summoned by God to preach to his people and his king in order to encourage them to return to a life of faith and justice at a time when the worship of false idols, wealth and lust seem to have taken the place of the values upon which God's Covenant was founded.
Jeremiah's words go against the tide and are destined to fall on stony ground. Indeed they become the cause of his persecution. Jeremiah sacrifices himself to his prophetic mission, but not without great interior conflict. Nevertheless he renounces the love of Judith in order to fulfil God's will.
