Scripture: Jonah 1:1-5
Far beyond the story of the big fish, the story of Jonah is one of the most complex short books of the Bible. Jonah found that one can’t run from God, but still didn’t want to obey. He prayed for help, but didn’t confess sin. He preached destruction, but never suggested repentance. Only Jesus makes reference to Jonah. Jonah enjoyed what he wanted to deny others. What’s the point in this story of conflicts and contradictions?
