Jonah knew that if he delivered God’s message to the Ninevites they would repent and God would save them; but he also knew that even if the Ninevites repented, they would backslide into their old ways. And that’s exactly what happens. The prophet Nahum makes clear what will happen to the capital of the Assyrian empire if they turn away from God. And indeed his prophecies come to pass: Nineveh is totally destroyed in 612 B.C. by a coalition of Babylonians and Medes, being buried under 40 feet of sand in the Iraqi desert until Sir Austen Henry Laylard discovers it’s remains in 1847. Join Logo’s Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he examines Nahum’s prophetic message to Nineveh.
In order to understand the Book of Nahum from the Old Testament, it is necessary to return to the story of Jonah, which Dr. Bill Creasey summarizes early in this lecture. Using his particular brand of humor, colloquial language, and rigorous scholarship, Creasey brings this Hebrew story into one's living room. As a listener follows along with his or her own Bible, Creasey guides him or her through time and the Holy Land. The Book of Nahum addresses the end of the Assyrian Empire and the fall of its capital city Nineveh. Creasey gives the event a chronology and a context in this comprehensive exploration of one of the 12 Minor Prophets.
