Finding Jesus in Nahum
The little known book of Nahum shows us a BIG picture of Jesus. Nahum means "Comfort" so how does Nahum bring comfort to Israel. In keeping with the other books of the Old Testament we see yet another picture of Jesus as our Savior and Judge. Nahum prophesies against Nineveh, again. Symbolic of the "world" and the rejection of the Lord, Nineveh finds itself as the object of God's judgement, His wrath. In great contrast, we discover the "comfort" of Judah as shown the mercy of God to those who do not reject Him. It is not only possible to hate what is evil yet love our enemies it is essential for us to live as Christ offering salvation to those who repent and call on the name of the Lord or face the judgment due from rejecting Him. Enjoy!
