Jesus and Jonah (Jonah Week 4)
There are numerous allusions to Jesus and his ministry in the book of Jonah, but Jonah the person looks strikingly different than Jesus. As followers of Christ, our challenge is to leave behind our Jonah-like tendencies and begin to look more and more like Jesus.
Scriptures: Jonah 1 & 4, Matthew 12:38-41
Series Description: The book of Jonah is a fascinating, beautifully crafted look at a terrifically flawed and seemingly unloving prophet of God. But more importantly, it’s a book about a God who is patient, loving and extravagantly gracious. The narrative contains encouraging insight into the nature of God and challenging insight into the nature of people. It’s a book that invites many questions — questions about the narrative itself and questions about our own lives, faith and journeys.
