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.

Nahum

Nahum is one of the overlooked books. He focuses on the problem of evil and powers that threaten God's people. The difficult topic of God's judgment arises. It is shown to be needed and positive and part of god's redeeming love. There is hope and reassurance for all who are mistreated and are powerless. God will fix it all in the end.
