God takes vengeance against His foes. He is jealous. Teaching about such attributes of God has not been fashionable for quite some time, but the Book of Nahum and its first eight verses are still part of the inspired Word and are still to be taught. Here are some points to think on as you prepare to teach Session 1 of your study of the Minor Prophets:
- God gave His life to save those who believe in Him.
- It is a good thing that He is jealous when those He saved forsake Him.
- When we forsake God, we do so invariably for something less than He.
- Nahum 1:2 teaches of His vengeance. Nahum 1:7 teaches of His loving care for those who take refuge in Him.

I am looking for what I understood was a blog for ideas to and from teachers to go along with the curriculum. Is the blog something that will build or is there a blog that someone can assist me to find. When I clicked on the “New Blog” button I did not see much.

Thank you for using our products! Yes, this is the blog that will be updated as the quarter progresses with ideas for teachers to help them prepare. We also have leader training videos available here. Some posts will have additional resources and another line of posts will soon launch that hopes to coach leaders pedagogically by discussing expository teaching in general. Let us know if there is any other type of content we can add to the blog: we want it to be as helpful as possible! God bless your ministry.
