The worst thing that can be said of the Assyrians in this book is that God cannot heal them. The last verse of Nahum concludes: "There is no remedy for your injuries, and your wounds cannot be healed." This is a terminal diagnosis -- like a doctor telling a patient, "Your cancer is so advanced, there is nothing I can do to help you." Theology has usually placed a premium on achieving God's forgiveness for sin as the "end all" that is involved in salvation. In this Bible study, we pursued the concept of salvation as healing rather than as a legal transaction.
