James has a quote and then writes,
Oh, I like that! It sounds like Jeremiah and Ezekiel. Imagine finding it in Deuteronomy!
Agreed. Oh wait, you don’t know what James is really saying?
I’ll help. What he is saying is that:
Jeremiah’s heart and Ezekiel’s heart and the heart in Deuteronomy are all the same. Further, he is alluding to the fact that Jeremiah was the proto-prophet of Deuteronomy 18 and the new covenant of both Jeremiah and Ezekiel is Deuteronomy.
James Spinti, as paraphrased by Joel Watts.
