Hope in the Darkness/Jonah
Scripture: Jonah 1:1– 4:11
Jonah and the whale (big fish). After a careful reading of the story from the Bible you may wonder why this has become such a popular children’s story. Or at least wonder if we have understood the message of Jonah entirely. The book of Jonah is the story of a prophet rather than the record of the words or message of the prophet. Jonah’s story serves as a mirror for us to gaze in and reflect on God and our understanding of his incredible heart for people who do not know him.
