Reflection Questions
  • Why would God single out the Ninevites for special attention?

  • How do you reconcile God’s apparently contradictory attitude toward Nineveh in the books of Jonah and Nahum?

  • How do you explain the irreconcilable differences between Jonah’s knowledge of the Scriptures (Exod. 34:6) and his implacable hatred of the Ninevites?

  • What role should the church play in the political arena with regard to modern-day Ninevites?
