I've been doing some reading in Jeremiah which led me to Wikipedia for some dates where I found a nice rabbit-trail to follow - especially in light of the recent series of posts on cross-references ...

Wikipedia:

The following is a list – not exhaustive – of noteworthy sign-acts found in Jeremiah:

  • Jeremiah 13:1–11 The wearing, burial, and retrieval of a linen waistband.
  • Jeremiah 16:1–9 The shunning of the expected customs of marriage, mourning, and general celebration.
  • Jeremiah 19:1–13 the acquisition of a clay jug and the breaking of said jug in front of the religious leaders of Jerusalem.
  • Jeremiah 27–28 The wearing of an oxen yoke and its subsequent breaking by a false prophet, Hananiah.
  • Jeremiah 32:6-15 The purchase of a field in Anathoth for the price of seventeen silver shekels.
  • Jeremiah 35:1–19 The offering of wine to the Rechabites, a tribe known for living in tents and refusing to drink wine. This was done in the Temple, which is an important part of the breaking of societal norms.

Which led to a web article everyone should read - and convert into user labels Smile

My problem is that I can find scattered identification of such acts spread throughout my resources but I can't suggest a comprehensive source to Faithlife to build the data for the interactive.

Possibilities - neither balanced or comprehensive:

Kelvin G. Friebel. Jeremiah's and Ezekiel's Sign-Acts: Rhetorical Nonverbal Communication

Morna D. Hooker. The Signs of a Prophet: The Prophetic Actions of Jesus

Åke Viberg. Prophets in action : an analysis of prophetic symbolic acts in the Old Testament

I don't know if this is what you are looking for but here are some helpful resources for dating events in Jeremiah.  The Bible Knowledge Commentary has a chart on pg. 1126 on the dating of Jeremiah's Prophecies.  Also I found some charts that are contained in this word doc.  The only problem is that I havn't been able to create a table of contents for this personal book.  I was wondering if you can do that for me and repost it if you have time.  Big Smile

I also started to create a Chronology of the New Testament with various charts taken from various books.  I will post both here:

0638.Chronology of the Old Testament.docx

I think your link doesn't work - I fixed that in the quote, assuming you wanted it to go to the byu page.

Thanks for catching this - I've gone back and fixed it.
