The story of Jonah is often considered to be one of the Bible’s greatest children’s stories. The big storm and the big whale. But there’s a lot more to Jonah (the man and the story) than getting swallowed by a giant fish.
God called Jonah to go to the great city of Nineveh and deliver a simple message: Repent or you will die in 40 days. Jonah refused. He hated the people of Nineveh and ran from God. He didn’t want his enemies to repent and be forgiven.
In this 6-week series through Jonah we will explore Jonah’s resistance to God and people, God’s pursuit of Jonah, and the boundary-crossing love that God has for our enemies.
