Transcript of Jonah: more than just a fish story

Jonah more than just a fish story Chapter One Jonah is a man of means
Jonah is trying to flee from the presence of the Lord
the human heart is sometimes a mystery Gentile sailors act like believers
Duality a classification into two opposed parts or subclasses The Fish James Bartley story Sperm whales live on squid, which they swallow whole. In 1955 a 405-pound squid was removed intact from the belly of a sperm whale. The Fish? James Bartley was a sailor aboard the whaling ship Star of the East. In February 1891, while the ship was near the Falkland Islands, a lookout spotted a sperm whale several miles off. Two boats were launched; one succeeded in harpooning the whale, but the second was upended by the whale's tail and its crew tossed into the water. One man drowned and another, Bartley, could not be found. Now the LORD provided a huge fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Jonah 1:17 dag: a fish And God created great whales, and every living creature that moveth, which the waters brought forth abundantly, after their kind Genesis 1:21 for as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Matthew 12:40 American Standard Version Romans 7:15
I do not understand what I do.
For what I want to do I do not do,
but what I hate I do. Psalm 139
Is there anyplace I can go to avoid your Spirit?
to be out of your sight?
If I climb to the sky, you're there!
If I go underground, you're there!
If I flew on morning's wings
to the far western horizon,
You'd find me in a minute—
you're already there waiting! The Message tanniyn: dragon, sea monster, serpent, whale ketos: whale, huge fish Bartley recalled being swallowed by a great darkness, then slipping along a smooth passage until he came to a larger space. He felt slimy stuff around him and realized he'd been swallowed by the whale. He could breathe, but the heat sucked the energy out of him and eventually he passed out. Chapter Two He said:
"In my distress I called to the LORD, and he answered me. From deep in the realm of the dead I called for help, and you listened to my cry.
You hurled me into the deep, into the very heart of the seas, and the currents swirled about me;
all your waves and breakers swept over me. I said, I have been banished from your sight; yet I will look again toward your holy temple. The engulfing waters threatened me, the deep surrounded me; seaweed was wrapped around my head. To the roots of the mountains I sank down; the earth beneath barred me in forever. But you, LORD my God, brought my life up from the pit. "When my life was ebbing away,
I remembered you, LORD, and my prayer rose to you, to your holy temple. "Those who cling to worthless idols forfeit God's love for them. But I, with shouts of grateful praise, will sacrifice to you. What I have vowed I will make good. I will say, Salvation comes from the LORD." And the LORD commanded the fish, and it vomited Jonah onto dry land. From inside the fish Jonah prayed to the LORD his God. Ps. 18 Ps. 69 Ps. 116 Ps. 31 Ps. 40 The whale was killed and hauled to the side of the ship, where the crew set to work carving up the carcass. The next morning they hoisted the stomach on deck and were surprised to see signs of life. Inside they found the unconscious Bartley, who they doused with seawater and soon revived. For two weeks he was a raving lunatic, but by the end of the third week he'd fully recovered. The only lasting effect of the incident was that the skin of his face, neck, and hands was bleached to the color of parchment by the whale's gastric juices. Chapter Three Nineveh- located on the bank of the Tigris
Mosul, Iraq today
Capital of Assyrian empire- 120,000 people Nahum 1:14
Nahum 3:1-3 The LORD has given a command concerning you, Nineveh:
"You will have no descendants to bear your name.
I will destroy the images and idols
that are in the temple of your gods.
I will prepare your grave,
for you are vile." Woe to the city of blood, full of lies, full of plunder, never without victims!
The crack of whips, the clatter of wheels, galloping horses and jolting chariots!
Charging cavalry, flashing swords
and glittering spears!
Many casualties, piles of dead,
bodies without number, people stumbling over the corpses— Ezekiel 33:11 As surely as I live, declares the Sovereign LORD, I take no pleasure in the death of the wicked, but rather that they turn from their ways and live. Turn! Turn from your evil ways! Chapter Four Jonah was angry In 701 BC, Hezekiah of Judah formed an alliance with Egypt against Assyria, so King Sennacherib accordingly marched toward Jerusalem, destroying 46 villages in his path the gourd from the LORD
God cares about people Where are you in the story? In Tarshish
In the storm
In the fish
In Nineveh
In judgment ? KJV
