Jonah

Jonah is one of those characters that jump out of the Bible.  He is not the type of person you would expect to feature as a Biblical prophet.  In a sense he is an “anti-prophet” who thinks he can run away from God.  He just doesn’t want any part of giving his “enemies” a chance at change and redemption.

There are profound lessons to be learned from Jonah, particularly in this time of prejudice, division and hate speech.

Jonah is an example of someone purporting to be religious and righteous, but his prejudices see him running away from God, just like so many of us do. This strange story has much for us to think about in our divided and chaotic world today.
