Many Christians dismiss the Book of Jonah as a cute children’s story involving a whale, or as the account of a second-rate prophet. However, Jesus saw it differently. In Matthew 12, He said that the only sign that would be given to that generation would be “the sign of Jonah”. Jesus went on to state that He was an even greater preacher of righteousness than Jonah had been. In this two-part series, we seek to understand Jonah as Jesus did, mining treasures to inspire our faith in the Word of God and to bring unbelievers to saving faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus on the third day.
