Chapter 4 – Jonah Runs Ahead of God
  • Jonah’s anger vs. God’s Kindness
  • Jonah reflects the very spirit of the Jewish people: Jehovah was their God, and He was not to be shared with any other people.
  • He had the same attitude as the older brother of the prodigal son (Luke 15:11-31)
  • With all of that before us, let us be careful in how we judge Jonah.
