Reflection Questions
  • Why did God allow a nation so brutal as Assyria to conquer his people? Describe how the Go/Come mechanism of missions are involved here.

  • Why is it surprising that the book of Jonah is in the canon? How do you think this happened?

  • In Ezra, Nehemiah, and Daniel we have magnificent prayers of repentance on the part of these people for their rebellious nations, but not a single one of them mentions any sense of failure to be a light to the nations, as Isaiah 49:6 implies. Why not?

  • Use your Hebrew concordance to trace the words translated as Assyria, Babylon, and Persia, to get a feel for their distribution in the canon. Do the same for Sennacherib, Cyrus, and Darius.
