Jeremiah - Sistine Chapel - Michelangelo

We just learned about Michelangelo's Sistine Chapel painting of the prophets Isaiah, Daniel, and Jonah.

Another prophet that Michelangelo painted on the ceiling was Jeremiah.

In the Bible, Jeremiah is sometimes called the weeping prophet because he was very sad that he had to tell God's people a lot of bad news about things that were coming in the future.
Michelangelo's painting of him shows him bent over with his head on his hand looking sad.
