This quiz, Nahum, looks at the city of Nineveh.
The thirty-fourth book in the Bible, and the seventh of the Minor Prophets, is the Book of Nahum. Nahum was from the town of Alqosh and, like the prophet Jonah 100 years before, spoke of Nineveh's coming punishment from God. After Jonah's visit the people of Nineveh had changed their ways and so avoided God's wrath. In the time of Nahum they had returned to their sinful lives. Nahum warns them that, despite their strength (Nineveh was the capital of Assyria, the most powerful nation at the time) God was more powerful still and He would destroy the Assyrian Kingdom very soon.
