Lessons from the Book of Jonah Chapter 3  Jonah’s new commission is essentially the same as the first one.  Jonah obeys and his message to the Ninevites is clear and concise.  Mass repentance, from the king to the commoner.  Their repentance moves the Lord to extend grace and mercy to them.  There is no historical record of a lasting period of belief in Nineveh. City was destroyed in 612 B.C.

Lessons from the Book of Jonah Chapter 4  Jonah is upset with God.  He has no compassion on the people of Nineveh.  He holds out hope that God will judge Nineveh.  God relieves Jonah from the misery of the sun.  God sends a worm to damage the plant.  Jonah’s anger does not arise from a desire for justice but from his own selfishness.  Jonah pities himself more than the plant.  Jonah’s ungracious heart vs. the kindness of God.

Lessons from the Book of Jonah Matthew 12:38-41: Jesus likens His own death/resurrection to Jonah’s time in the fish. We need to have a heart like God’s towards all. A demonstration of God’s power to employ creation to accomplish His divine plan. The power within the word of God when it comes into contact with good and honest hearts. The importance of repentance: A requirement to turn away from evil conduct (Luke 13:3, 5).
