The Prophet Jonah (Jonah 1:1-3)Phillip Stuckey, August 9, 2015
Part of the Miscellaneous series, preached at a Sunday Evening service
Jonah was a prophet of God in the days of Jeroboam II (2 Kgs. 14:25). Jesus spoke of him and his experience in the belly of the great fish (Mt. 12:38-41). The book of Jonah speaks about God’s compassion for all people as He calls for the prophet of Israel to go and preach to the great city of the heathen nation of Assyria, Nineveh. What can we learn from the prophet Jonah?

Jonah 1:1–3 (Listen)
1:1 Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, 2 “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it, for their evil has come up before me.” 3 But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish. So he paid the fare and went down into it, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the LORD.
