Some Bible stories are just too deliciously visual to resist bringing to pictorial life. I found Jonah to be one of those.
In my 2018 project to journal at least once in each minor prophet book, Jonah got the full treatment; an entry on each of its four pages.
I love the end-of-Jonah challenge cast before the reader by my study Bible’s notes:
“After a brief pause to imagine the worst threat someone could pose against us or the worst injury someone could inflict upon us, then we are ready to ask ourselves: ‘Would I be willing to invest myself in God’s forgiveness of them?’” – Charles W. Snow – Study notes on Jonah, New Spirit-Filled Life Bible, p. 1198.
