Jonah: Mission Impossible

Jonah’s story is a pre-Christian story of Christian conversion and mission! Such is why it’s so important that Jesus points back to the “sign of Jonah.” Jonah spent three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish as a rebellious soul captured by God’s justice. He cried out to God and was saved by God’s unmerited grace, and he reentered the world as a new man...a saved man...and an ambassador of God’s justice and mercy.
