Why Nineveh? Jonah Would Love to Know Too!

Here we are with installment three of our Geographical-Theology treatment. I actually never meant for there to be any sequels to the first post, but God has led me onward and upward.

Our next stop, much to the chagrin and protest of Jonah, is a place near and dear to the Assyrians (but not many others, Jonah chief amongst them!), a place called Nineveh. Nineveh was, in Jonah’s day, the capital city of the mighty Assyrian Empire.

Stubborn as a Mule!

Are you stubborn as a grass stain or as easy-going as a light breeze on a warm day? Tell us about the ways in which you’re stubborn — which issues make you dig your heels in and refuse to budge?
