The prophet Jeremiah was given some severe words to speak to the people concerning how they were behaving while being in covenant with their Elohim. They were living in the land and claiming Yahweh to be their Elohim yet, at the same time, living according to the idolatry of the nations around them, but thinking they were doing it unto Yahweh. Yahweh said no more! “Why should my beloved be in my house? She has done wickedness with many.” (Jeremiah 11:15)

Rabbi Steve Berkson points out from the warnings of Jeremiah that loving the world and being in covenant with Yahweh is impossible. You will have to hate one and love the other.

Going forward, Rabbi Berkson digs deep into the metaphor of the olive tree with its branches getting broken off and other branches grafted in beginning in Jeremiah 11:16 and moving into Romans 11 and John 15.
