Nahum [God in the Ruins]

God in the Ruins Series GFX_App Square

This past weekend at Eastbrook I continued our series on the message of the minor prophets, “God in the Ruins,” by looking at the prophet Nahum.

Nahum is one of those books that can feel especially “minor” in the minor prophets, with a tough message for a very historically specific context. Nahum is one of the 7th century BC prophets in the Hebrew Bible, including Habakkuk, Zephaniah, and Jeremiah. The book basically falls into two major sections with chapter 1 focusing on God as judge and chapters 2-3 focusing on the judgment God will bring on Nineveh.

You can view the message from this past weekend and follow along with the message outline below. You can also engage with the entire series on the minor prophets here or download the Eastbrook mobile app for even more opportunities to connect.

“The Lord is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; he knows those who take refuge in him.” (Nahum 1:7)
