The Book of Nahum – No Pity for Fools (mp3)


Introduction

It is not hard to imagine that Nahum was precisely the prophet that Jonah wanted to be. Nahum, like Obediah, was sent to give a particular message of destruction to a particular people. Like Jonah, Nahum speaks of Assyria and its capitol of Nineveh, but unlike Jonah, his prophecy is one of unredacted wrath. What has brought such wrath upon Nineveh, and what might we learn from it even today? Let us turn to Nahum and hear what the prophet from Elkosh has to say!

1. Fools do not know the Lord

2. Fools do not know themselves

3. Fools will know destruction
