Homilies on Jeremiah: Homily on 1 Kings 28

By John Clark Smith; Origen | Go to book overview

HOMILY 18

Jeremiah 18.1-16

On "The word which came from the Lord to Jeremiah, saying. 'Arise and go down to the house of the potter,'" up to, "to assign their land to destruction and derision."

EXT IN WHAT WAS READ there are two visions of Jeremiah. Of these the former contains what concerns the clay vessel in the hand of the potter which is capable of reconstruction after crushing, for it is possible to remold it. But the other vision contains what concerns the earthen wine vessel which if broken has no remedy. For when it was clay, if it broke, even if it was already formed, it allows itself, since it was clay, to be kneaded a second time and be created a second time. But when, after being clay it becomes earthen and hardened by fire, then after the crushing of the earthen there could not be a remedy for it. What then these words portend we will consider first in an overview, then, if it is so ordained, we will examine it word by word.

(2) As long as we are in this life, because of our clay vessel, we are formed--I will name it in this way--like a pot,1. and we are formed either according to evil or according to virtue. Indeed we are formed in this way so that our evil is admitted and crushed in order to become a new and better creature, and our progress is unbridled after the formation into a clay vessel. But when we have gone beyond the present
