November 21, 2022 to November 27, 2022

Jonah’s book contains a strange account of a stubborn prophet, a great fish that swallows and regurgitates Jonah, the conversion of a whole city, and the rapid growth and death of a gourd. More importantly, this book foreshadows the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, as Jesus himself said. Micah warns of destruction but also prophesies of a house of the Lord in the last days, and he tells how the Lord delights in mercy.

The message of the book of Jonah is that the Messiah would live and die to make salvation available to all humankind. Parallels between Jonah and Jesus include their agony, submission, going down into the depths of hell, and rising and returning to life. Nineveh’s conversion evokes the Lord’s future coming and ruling in peace.
