Title: Jonah 3

2
What is Jonah about?
  • It is not about a fish (mentioned only four
    times), or Nineveh (named nine times), or even
    Jonah (mentioned eighteen times). Its about God
    (mentioned thirty-eight times).

Nineveh
  • It was an important city of the empire known as
    Assyria.
  • The Assyrians were known for their military might
    and brutality.
  • The Assyrians were hated by the world.
  • Hosea prophesied the Assyrians would take the
    northern tribes into exile.

  • The most amazing fact is that God gives Nineveh
    time to repent at all. Why should God be
    concerned with Nineveh, that symbol of human evil
    and will to power? Why does God not destroy it
    immediately and be done with it? That certainly
    would be Jonahs desire. But here the book of
    Jonah looks into the heart of God and finds there
    only love, even for the worst of sinners. God
    does not want to give up on the Ninevehs of the
    world the message for all readers of the book!
    God cares about even the most wicked, and cannot
    endure their loss. This is a God of justice, to
    be sure, whose lordship cannot be mocked. But
    above all else, this is a God of love who has no
    pleasure in the death of anyone, no matter how
    evil they may be (Ez 1832), and who will send
    even his only Son because of his great love for
    our wicked world.
