The Mission of Jonah—A Booklet
Why consider such a booklet at this time of the year one may ask? Well because it has been suggested that Jonah the prophet was a type of Christ, in that sacrifice, death, resurrection and conversion are key features of his dramatic life.
It goes into many areas of the book of Jonah considering among other things how he survived three days in the belly of a great fish.
It's also a timely reminder that God cares about all nations at a time when his prime concern was the children of Israel. This comes at a period when Mosul in Iraq has been in the news for most of this century and the ancient city of Nineveh is on the eastern side of that city which has seen much conflict, close to the Kurdish population that has suffered so much.
Luke 11:29‑30 (NEB) "The only sign that will be given is the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation."
This booklet is available free on request.
