Inter-textuality in the book of Jeremiah, drawing from the book of Deuteronomy Within the Hebrew Bible, there are various example of inter-textuality, which is  when one biblical text refers to another biblical text.  One book that exuded inter- textuality is the book of Jeremiah, which drew from the book of Deuteronomy.  This  book, through Jeremiah’s oracles and even the later writings of anonymous scribes,  portrays the strong connection and revere for the book of Deuteronomy and all of its  attributes by his and other scribes, repetition of passages from Deuteronomy to  emphasize certain beliefs or law that they held fast to, in the book of Jeremiah. The book of Jeremiah, according to the Anchor Bible Dictionary, conveyed  “Traditions from the north, particularly associated with Moses, predominate in the call  and in the earliest preaching” which would explain the inter-textuality within the book.  Jeremiah’s interest in Deuteronomy, and the culture of the North, explains why passages  of it would be included in the “Oracles of the Prophet” on the book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah even saw himself as one that would “take on the responsibility of being a  prophet like Moses” to the people of Israel, as the founder of ancient Israel tradition did.
