Who spoke from the sky when Jesus was baptized, and what was said?
selahsays, God the Father spoke:

And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him: And lo a voice from heaven, saying, This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.

- Matthew 3:16-17 (KJV)

Nineveh…

Jonah 1:2… Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.

What eventually was the fate of Nineveh?
The book of Nahum tells of the destruction of Nineveh by the Babylonians….

Nahum 2: 8-13….

8 Though Nineveh of old was like a pool of water,
Now they flee away.
“Halt! Halt!” they cry;
But no one turns back.
9 Take spoil of silver!
Take spoil of gold!
There is no end of treasure,
Or wealth of every desirable prize.
10 She is empty, desolate, and waste!
The heart melts, and the knees shake;
Much pain is in every side,
And all their faces are drained of color.
11 Where is the dwelling of the lions,
And the feeding place of the young lions,
Where the lion walked, the lioness and lion’s cub,
And no one made them afraid?
12 The lion tore in pieces enough for his cubs,
Killed for his lionesses,
Filled his caves with prey,
And his dens with flesh.
13 “Behold, I am against you,” says the Lord of hosts, “I will burn your chariots in smoke, and the sword shall devour your young lions; I will cut off your prey from the earth, and the voice of your messengers shall be heard no more.”

in Bethabara beyond the Jordan.… Not only was Jesus baptized here, but also He was revealed to Israel as the Son of God, the Messiah.

John’s ministry, which had been prophesied by Isaiah and Malachi was being fulfilled at this place as well.

John 1:26-28….

26 John answered them, saying, “I baptize with water, but there stands One among you whom you do not know. 27 It is He who, coming after me, is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I am not worthy to loose.”

28 These things were done in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.

29 The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, “Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

Which illness did Mephibosheth suffer from? :)
can i just say this is, to me, one of the most poignant pictures of the Gospel in all the Bible?
David wanting to show kindness for Jonathan's sake, just as we are shown kindness, mercy and love for Jesus' sake.

like Mephibosheth, we'll eat at the King's table forever. glory to God!

Normally new kings kill the entire lineage of the kings they replace so there are no disputes later as to who is the rightful king. Mephibosheth probably thought he would be killed when brought before David. Not only that, he was helpless to escape as he couldn't walk. He is indeed a picture of us all before Jesus...under the sentence of death and helpless to do anything about it.

Great is the mercy of our King.

Where was John when he received the revelation of Jesus Christ?
