“Jonah, The Prophet on the Run”  – Taught by Dr. Oliver Blosser

Class will be taught at both 9:15 am and 10:30 am | July 21 – August 18, Room 201

Every soul is redeemable.  The LORD’s compassion is available for all mankind – even the Gentile people of Nineveh – the enemies of Israel.  The one thing which the LORD required so that judgment would not come upon Nineveh was repentance.  To repent in Hebrew thought means to turn or return to God.  Their repentance and the LORD’s compassion was difficult for Jonah, a Jew, to accept.  Jonah is the only prophet whom Jesus likened to Himself.  Jonah’s experience became a type of the death, burial and Resurrection of the Messiah.  The sign-miracle of Jonah would be the same miracle that would demonstrate that Jesus was Israel’s true Messiah, cf., Matthew 12:39-41.
