Sermons on Jonah
Jonah has been on a topsy turvy journey with God and as we reach the final instalment of his journey, he is shown to be full of resentment towards God. Jonah is convinced that Nineveh didn’t deserve God’s mercy. But Jonah’s vision of God’s plan for the world is nearsighted and narrow. Instead of resting in God’s grace, Jonah resents it.
