I know this is an old question, but I thought I'd provide some additional perspective. First, though, we need to define what a prophet actually is (from an LDS perspective). In Preach My Gospel, the LDS Church's official training manual for its missionary program, a prophet is defined as: A man who has been called by and speaks for God. As a messenger ...

John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the ...

Nineveh (Assyria) repented in 700 something BC and God spared them. But obviously later generations in Nineveh in 600 something BC were not repentant as their ancestors were. They ended up paying the consequences. A Jew with the name of Nahum said that at one time Jonah and Nahum were next to each in the order of the Old Testament. Reference Mosiac website ...
