JONAH

By its content and spirit, the book of Jonah reveals the universality and compassion of God’s grace. This is hinted in chapter 3:10 and broadly stated in chapter 4;11. This book is biographical. It begins and ends with the Lord speaking to Jonah. First Jonah is given a commission of Judgment; finally the LORD portrays His mercy and compassion. Between these two depictions of the LORD’S character lies Jonah’s response to God’s justice compassion.

Jonah refuses to accept the LORD’S commission lest the heathen repent and God, forgiving the repentant heathen, appears in strong contrast to the narrow, bigoted and unforgiving spirit of Jonah.
