Nahum Series 1

In this message, we begin a consideration of the book of Nahum, a prophecy against Nineveh, following up on the book of Jonah. It was perhaps written during the siege of Jerusalem, many years before the predicted destruction actually came on the city. The “wicked counselor” mentioned in perhaps Rab-shakeh, who mocked the LORD at the walls of Jerusalem. In chapter 2, the actual battle and defeat of Nineveh is described. We discuss the battle that destroyed the city. We know Babylon were the ones who defeated them and took over their empire, but who were Babylon’s allies in this?
