Chapter three also details the fallout from Nineveh’s destruction. Their mighty warriors would flee, the line of kings would be cut off, and their people would be scattered among the nations. To rub salt in the wound, the Bible prophesied that none of Assyria’s neighbors would pity their downfall. No one would show any sympathy for the destruction of this abusive empire.
And of course, it wouldn’t be The Bible Burrito without a handful of references to nerd culture. The Marvel Cinematic Universe, the Chronicles of Narnia, and Avengers: Infinity War’s Thanos all come up during this chapter breakdown. As a bonus, if you’re a fig lover, there’s even some fun fig trivia for you in there!
UPDATE: We wanted to clarify that there is actually a city near the site where Nineveh stood: Mosul, Iraq. However, the ruins of the city went undiscovered for centuries, and the city was never actually rebuilt, so our statement about the permanence of the destruction does still mostly stand true.
