jonah … seriously?

Posted: February 8, 2008 in bible, God

Have you ever read the book of Jonah? Here it is in The Message version. It’s 4 chapters in total. I totally recommend it.

It had been a while since I’d read it. We read it last night during the guys small group I’m in. Holy crap! What a weird, trippy, fascinating story. It’s very difficult to distinguish whether it’s literally true, or more of a parable. And though you may know that Jonah was sent to speak to Ninevah, you may not realize he only spoke ONE SENTENCE to them, and the entire city – 120,000 strong – turned to God.

And you may know that Jonah spent three days inside a whale. But did you know that Jonah very well may not have realized he was in a whale? At least not until he was vomited out. Well, there are too many amazing occurences to point out here. Check it out for yourself.

God’s Word never ceases to amaze.
