The response of Jeremiah (Jer 28:5-28:5)

“Then the prophet Jeremiah


To the prophet Hananiah,

In the presence of the priests

With all the people

Who were standing

In the house of Yahweh.”

Jeremiah the prophet responded to Hananiah the prophet in this old fashioned shoot out of prophets. Jeremiah spoke in the same presence of the priests. He also spoke to all the people standing in the Temple, which makes a lot more sense than all the people without any conditions.
