Baruch ben Neriah
 http://mydailybibleverse.com/archives/1528 from the 6th century BC was Biblical prophet Jeremiah¶s scribe, secretary,disciple and a good friend. Jewishhistorian Josephus says he was of Jewish nobility, a son of Neriah and brother of Seraiah ben Neriah,chamberlain of King Zedekiah of Judah.Prophet Jeremiah's dictated the firstand second editions of his propheciesand Baruch was the one who wrotethem down.Just like his master, Baruch was often desperate due to current events and circumstance, yethe remained true to the ideas and teachings of the great prophet.While the rage of King Jehoakim forced Jeremiah into hiding, Baruch was the one to read his prophetic messages of warning at the Temple in Jerusalem to the gathered crowds. That wasfar from easy or safe. Yet Baruch had no second thoughts nor was he afraid.In 587±586 BC Baruch and Jeremiah became witnesses of the Babylonians laying siege toJerusalem.Halfway through the siege, Jeremiah purchased himself his ancestors¶ estate in Anathoth - thevery one that the Babylonian armies were being encamped on at the time - to make asymbolic statement of his faith in the eventual redemption and deliverance of Jerusalem.According to historian Josephus, Baruch continued to reside with Jeremiah at Mizpah, which Nebuchadnezzar II turned into the administrative centre of what was now known as hisYehud province, under supervision of governor Gedaliah.Baruch was not just a scribe for Jeremiah. He was a friend, a partner in some cases, even anadvisor. God could use him thanks to his trust and faith and send him to do Jeremiah's work when the latter was unable to do it personally and influence.Once Gedaliah was murdered, they both encouraged the Jews to remain in Judah despite thelooming fear of Babylonian retaliation, but the pleas fell on deaf ears. Both Baruch andJeremiah were forcefully taken to Egypt.One tradition says he died in Egypt, the other that he was taken to Babylon once Nebuchadnezzar had come, seen and conquered Egypt...
