The Book of Jonah has often been enjoyed as a children’s story with its vivid imagery of storm-tossed seas, a hungry whale, and a reluctant prophet. Yet, a closer look at this Old Testament narrative reveals something more shocking and more beautiful. At the center of this little book is the declaration “Salvation is from the LORD!” It’s a story about rebels who have been rescued, and the sovereign, overflowing grace of the God who pursues those rebels.
This ancient story holds wisdom for us today as it points us to God’s character and our desperate need of His rescuing love.
