Recently a friend and I were discussing how the 10 northern tribes of Israel were taken by the ruthless Ninevites, and were never referenced as a group again. There were mentions of a few individuals as descendants of those tribes, but the tribe as a whole were not. A few individuals here and there were mentioned as being present, and being of one of those tribes.
The Ninevites were later destroyed by the Babylonians, but were they wiped out? My imagination then took me to current day, and the ruthlessness of some folks- especially baby killers.
I assume Ninevites, like members of the 10 northern tribes of Israel, were not completely destroyed…survivors escaped. And like Anna (Luke 2:36) of Asher remained, I believe there are Ninevites walking among us.
When I hear of evil beyond measure, I assume it has been done by a descendant of the Ninevites.
We are not alone.
