While doing the series on Jeremiah, I encountered a number of times the phrase, "And it happened." Generally, it was inserted as a transitional unit, used primarily to signal a change in the scenario. Often, it was used during a time when the reader was not expecting some occurrence or when something out of the ordinary would enter to disrupt or validate an issue. Nonetheless, the phrase, "and it happened," inevitably would signal a change in direction or course of events.
