Nahum 1:7

In the nearly five years I've been handling these Bible questions, I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've been asked about Nahum!

Matthew 10:23

This passage is especially popular with those Bible scholars who believe Jesus was, basically, a failed prophet. He believed the end of the world was literally at hand, and he was wrong.


The Gospel of John is the most overtly metaphysical of the four gospels; its focus is not on the events of the life of Jesus of Nazareth so much as on the Christ—the infinite spiritual Power that Jesus came to embody and demonstrate.

Psalm 4

This psalm, a prayer for deliverance from personal enemies, has its roots in the rituals used to call upon the judgment of the Divine—sacrifices are offered at the altar and, apparently, the petitioner spends a night alone in the temple.

Isaiah 9:2, 4, 7

Scholars believe these passages may be part of an oracle written to celebrate the accession of the Judean king Hezekiah. They are full of confidence in the favor of God and the strength of the Davidic monarchy.
