What about Jonah?

What about Jonah?

Going in, Jonah knew that Israel’s God was a God of grace. 2 Kings 14:25 corroborates that he knew this. God is gracious when people absolutely don’t deserve it. Jonah didn’t want to see God be good to the enemies of Israel. He wanted God to treat them as enemies.

But God is above acting the way that men do. He thought he could thwart God’s plans by being disobedient. That is the worst place to be. Jonah finds out.

In this podcast, we discuss Jonah as a metaphor for both Old Testament Israel and the modern Church.

Finally, Jeff referenced 1 Peter 2:9 as an exhortation:

“But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light.”
