Lesson 2 of 5
In Progress

Outline of Jonah

1. Jonah Rebels and Flees (1:1-2:17)

Jonah is called by God to preach to Nineveh, but instead flees in the opposite direction. God sends a storm to stop Jonah and a big fish to save Jonah when Jonah is thrown into the ocean.

2. Jonah’s Song (2:1-10)

In the belly of the fish, Jonah sings a song of thanksgiving.

3. Jonah in Nineveh (3:1-10)

Jonah is delivered to Nineveh, where he preaches a short sermon and the entire wicked city repents. God does not destroy the city.

4. Jonah’s Lesson (4:1-11)

Jonah is angry that God spared the city, so he asks to die. God tries to teach Jonah that God loves all creatures–even sinners.
