A Prophecy Misused?

(Unwrapped: the Truth about Christmas #25)

What's in the series?      Previous: Herod the Tyrant       Next: Out of Egypt?

Matthew says that Herod's slaughter of the boys in Bethlehem fulfilled a prophecy from the Old Testament (Jeremiah 31:15).

At first it looks as if he is misusing a prophecy that was not about the birth of Jesus at all.

But the wider context of the prophecy Matthew quotes talks about God making a new agreement with his people.

The Gospels record that Jesus applied this promise of a new agreement to himself – a new agreement that was sealed by his death.

The writers of the rest of the New Testament also understood Jesus as fulfilling Jeremiah's prophecy of this new agreement.
