The book is called Jonah. That means it’s about Jonah, right? Nope. It’s not about Jonah. It’s not about a big fish. It’s not about a city called Nineveh. It’s about God. God is the hero of the book of Jonah. It’s God who calls, God who disciplines Jonah, who restores Jonah, who relents from the destruction of Nineveh, who extends grace, shows compassion, is slow to anger, abounds in love, who controls nature and accomplishes his purposes. The book of Jonah teaches us about God’s heart for the nations. So, yes, God is the focus and the hero.
Join us for a look at the book of Jonah, week 1.
