Dredge I do believe we have to look at the words of Hebrews and Jeremiah in context.
In jeremiah 32 if you continue reading the prophet reassures the people that they will return from Babylon and the captivity that they were entering into.
Look at this part
Jer 32:14 Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Take these deeds, this deed of purchase, which is sealed, and this deed which is open; and put them in an earthen vessel, that they may last many days.
Jer 32:15 For thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel; Houses and fields and vineyards shall be possessed again in this land.
Jer 32:16 Now when I had delivered the deed of purchase unto Baruch the son of Neriah, I prayed unto the LORD, saying,
Now this repossession we know took place following the return from Babylon.What seemed to be an impossible dream at the time,when they were being carted off to Babylon came true as we read in the books of Ezra Nehemiah and beyond. The people were given another chance and even up to the prophet Malachi God is still urging his people to hold fast to the covenant and the Sabbath which was a sign of that particular mosaic covenant.But we know what happened.By the time that Jesus came the axe was laid to the root of the trees.The old covenant clearly was not working the people broke it again and again, the priesthood was unbelievably corrupt and God in His mercy sent the One who would usher in the New Covenant.Our beloved Messiah and Redeemer Jesus.
