Sunday School: Nahum
Passage: Nahum 1:1–3:19
Big Picture: Nahum encourages the faithful by comforting them with a promise from the sovereign, all-powerful God that He would make an end of their cruel Assyrian oppressor and its wicked capital, Ninevah.
Chapter 1: 2-15: The Lord’s anger against Ninevah and jealousy for his people Judah.
Chapter 2: A poetic depiction of the fall of the city
Chapter 3: A second poetic depiction of the fall of the entire empire.
1) It is good that we serve an avenging and jealous God
2) The Sovereign God alone delivers his people.
3) A day is coming when all wicked people and nations will be defenceless before the all-powerful God.
