Jonah through the eyes of Jesus

By Soon Yong

There is so much irony in the book Jonah.
In the end there was no resolution for Jonah but Nineveh was saved.

John 7:51

Jonah is the only prophet Jesus likens to Himself.

Parallels

3 days of death
The perfect storms

Acts 2:17

Mat 12:38-41
Luke 11:29-30
Jonah was sufficient a sign for Nineveh yet Jesus performed many signs.
It is the word of God and not the speaker.

Being a hearer of the word and not a doer only brings you greater condemnation.

2Tim 3:5

Man’s defiance only shows God’s sovereignty.
