Jonah

For the next 4 weeks I will be preaching about the prophet Jonah.

The story of a fish swallowing a man, (golly, that sounds like a fish story) and that man living to tell the tale sounds impossible — yet God says it is true! The story of Jonah is very different than the other prophetic


books because it is not full of prophecies by the prophet; instead, it is about the life of the prophet. While most of the other Old Testament prophets prophesied to Israel or Judah, Jonah’s task was to go to the Assyrians in Nineveh and prophesy to them. Learn more about God’s reluctant prophet as I work through each chapter of Jonah on 4 consecutive Sundays.

Jonah remains a very relevant story for us in today's world. Come and ask yourself, "who and / or what am I running from?"
