God’s Mercy to Rebels [The Hero of the Story]
Why does God show mercy to rebellious people? That’s the question we’re addressing as we look at the book of Jonah on this episode of The Hero of the Story. Listen in as we discuss:
- Why God sent Jonah to the Ninevites in the first place.
- Who the “hero” of this particular story is.
- How the challenge of this book needs to weigh on us.
- How this book points us to the gospel.
If you are using The Gospel Project at your church, this passage is studied in Unit 14, Session 1, “A Rebellious People” (Adults and Students), or “Jonah, Prophet to Nineveh” (Preschool and Kids).
We also recommend The Prodigal Prophet by Timothy Keller as a helpful resource to enrich your study of Jonah.
