Nahum – #02, The Insolence and Blasphemy of Sennacherib

Nahum 1:6-15
To understand Nahum’s prophesy of the fall of Assyria’s capital, Nineveh, in 612BC, and with it the great Assyrian empire, is to understand God’s anger and judgment of gentile nations who reject God’s grace and mercy and who abuse His Chosen People and who are cruel and wicked. But to grasp how this works out, we need to review the history and circumstance of God’s warnings and longsuffering toward gentile Nineveh.
