Transcript of Jonah

Jonah
Chapter 4
"I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love, a God who relents from sending calamity."
Jonah 4:2
Chapter 1
"But Jonah rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and went down into it to go with them to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD."
Jonah 1:3
Chapter 2
"I descended to the roots of the mountains. The earth with its bars was around me forever, But You have brought up my life from the pit, O LORD my God."
Jonah 2:6
Chapter 3
"Jonah obeyed the word of the LORD and went to Nineveh. Now Nineveh was a very important city--a visit required three days."
Jonah 3:3
Background & Context
"In the fifteenth year of Amaziah son of Joash king of Judah, Jeroboam son of Jehoash king of Israel became king in Samaria, and he reigned forty-one years. He did evil in the eyes of the LORD and did not turn away from any of the sins of Jeroboam son of Nebat, which he had caused Israel to commit. He was the one who restored the boundaries of Israel from Lebo Hamath to the Sea of the Arabah, in accordance with the word of the LORD, the God of Israel, spoken through his servant Jonah son of Amittai, the prophet from Gath Hepher."
2 Kings 14:23-25
"In God's providence, the expansion of Jeroboam was made easier because of Assyrian weakness. The Assyrians were engaged in conflicts with the Arameans and the Uratians. There was also widespread famine, and numerous revolts within the Assyrian Empire (where regional governors ruled with a fair degree of autonomy). Then there was an auspicious eclipse of the sun during the reign of Ashur-dan III (771-754BC). This convergence of events supports the plausibility of the Ninevites being so responsive to Jonah's call to repent."
Mark Futato
"When the news reached the
king of Nineveh
, he rose from his throne, took off his royal robes, covered himself with sackcloth and sat down in the dust. Then he issued a proclamation in Nineveh: 'By the decree of
the king and his nobles
: Do not let any man or beast, herd or flock, taste anything; do not let them eat or drink.'"
Jonah 3:6-7
"Now all the tax collectors and the sinners were coming near Him to listen to Him. Both the Pharisees and the scribes began to grumble, saying, 'This man receives sinners and eats with them.'"
Luke 15:1-2
"And by chance a priest was going down on that road, and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. Likewise a Levite also, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, who was on a journey, came upon him; and when he saw him, he felt compassion, and came to him and bandaged up his wounds, pouring oil and wine on them; and he put him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn and took care of him."
Luke 10:31-34
"Then He began to denounce the cities in which most of His miracles were done, because they did not repent. 'Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Bethsaida! For if the miracles had occurred in Tyre and Sidon which occurred in you, they would have repented long ago in sackcloth and ashes. Nevertheless I say to you, it will be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment than for you. And you, Capernaum, will not be exalted to heaven, will you? You will descend to Hades; for if the miracles had occurred in Sodom which occurred in you, it would have remained to this day. Nevertheless I say to you that it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom in the day of judgment, than for you.' At that time Jesus said, 'I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that You have hidden these things from the wise and intelligent and have revealed them to infants. Yes, Father, for this way was well-pleasing in Your sight."
Matthew 11:20-26
Into the New Testament
"Do not be like the horse or the mule, which have no understanding but must be controlled by bit and bridle or they will not come to you."
Psalm 32:9
"...the story in the book of Jonah provides commentary and reflection on the rest of the prophetic books, probably serving as a foil for underscoring the disobedience and failure to repent of Israel and Judah. The prophets preach for generation to Israel and Judah, pleading continuously for the king, his nobles, and the people to repent and turn to Yahweh, and warning them continuously over and over of the coming judgment. Unbelievably, nothing happens. No one, from the king down to the lowest servant, repents and turns to Yahweh (with only a few notable exceptions). In the book of Jonah, the contrast is staggering. Without pleading, begging, or arguing, the reluctant prophet delivers one brief warning statement: 'Forty more days and Nineveh will be destroyed' (3:4). At this point everyone in the city, from the king down to the very lowest in the city (the animals are included too!), repents and puts on sackcloth and ashes. Incredibly, what happens in Nineveh is what should have happened in Israel and in Judah, but didn't."
Daniel Hays
"In that day there will be a highway from Egypt to Assyria, and the Assyrians will come into Egypt and the Egyptians into Assyria, and the Egyptians will worship with the Assyrians. In that day Israel will be the third party with Egypt and Assyria, a blessing in the midst of the earth, whom the LORD of hosts has blessed, saying, 'Blessed is Egypt My people, and Assyria the work of My hands, and Israel My inheritance.'"
Isaiah 19:23-25
"Then the sailors became afraid and every man cried to his god, and they threw the cargo which was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone below into the hold of the ship, lain down and fallen sound asleep."
Jonah 1:5
"Then the sailors became afraid and every man cried to his god, and they threw the cargo which was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone below into the hold of the ship, lain down and fallen sound asleep."
Jonah 1:5
"On the first day, Jonah started into the city. He proclaimed: 'Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned.'"
Jonah 3:4
"The Ninevites believed God. They declared a fast, and all of them, from the greatest to the least, put on sackcloth."
Jonah 3:5
"The LORD said to Moses, 'How long will this people spurn Me? And how long will they not believe in Me, despite all the signs which I have performed in their midst?"
Numbers 14:11
(cf. Amos 4:6-12)
"For from the least of them even to the greatest of them, Everyone is greedy for gain, and from the prophet even to the priest Everyone deals falsely."
Jeremiah 6:13
"Therefore I will give their wives to others, their fields to new owners; because from the least even to the greatest everyone is greedy for gain; from the prophet even to the priest Everyone practices deceit."
Jeremiah 8:10
"Now return to the LORD your God, for He is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in lovingkindness and relenting of evil."
Joel 2:13
"Then some of the Pharisees and teachers of the law said to him, "Teacher, we want to see a miraculous sign from you." He answered, "A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a miraculous sign! But none will be given it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now one greater than Jonah is here. The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom, and now one greater than Solomon is here."
Matthew 12:38-42
"For God so loved the world..."
John 3:16
