Title: 10,000 ft. Flyover Review: Jonah


1
10,000 ft. Flyover ReviewJonah Ruth
  • Jonah Theme
  • The Lord is a God of boundless compassion not
    just for us (Jonah and the Israelites) but also
    for them (the pagan sailors and Ninevites).
  • Ruth Theme
  • Gods people experience his sovereignty,
    wisdom, and covenant kindness. These often come
    disguised in hard circumstances and are mediated
    through the kindness of others.
  • ESV Study Bible

2
People are in desperate need of the hesed of the
LORD.
  • We deserve to be struck down, but Gods hesed is
    continually poured out on us.
  • Who in these books reflect Gods hesed?

3
God sovereignly appoints/orchestrates events to
bring about His beautiful ends.
  • Jonahs redirection
  • Obeds appearance.

4
Yahweh shows His love and mercy toward the
outsiders/non-Jews and calls them into the faith
of Abraham.
  • The mariners and Ninevites.
  • The not-so-Jewish family.

5
God calls us out of self-centeredness into a
place of compassion for others and trust in Him.
  • Jonahs preference of personal death over pagan
    deliverance.
  • Naomi in her community of praise.

6
God is a saving, merciful God...all throughout
Scripture!
The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases   
    his mercies never come to an end    they
are new every morning        great is your
faithfulness.    The LORD is my portion, says
my soul,        therefore I will hope in
him.        The LORD is good to those who wait
for him,        to the soul who seeks him.   
It is good that one should wait quietly       
for the salvation of the LORD.    (Lamentations
322-26 ESV)
