Biblical Audio Commentary – Reprieve

The story of Nineveh is fascinating, not only in its own right, but because it’s a morality tale for America.  Nineveh was the primary city of the Assyrian empire.  Assyria was noted for its ferocity in battle and for the fact that its victims suffered immensely.  It was not unusual for people in an intended target city of the Assyrians to commit suicide rather than subject themselves to the horrors of what they knew was coming.  Think Hamas on October 7, 2023 with the tortures, rapes, and murders its depraved terrorists committed, rolled into a single nation whose purpose is to pillage, and plunder, and destroy anything in its maniacal desire to take over the world.  Hmmm, sounds like the proposed plan for a Palestinian state comprised of radical Islamists.  But I digress.
