Pastor Scott Suskovic continues his series, "the rest of the story". This week we are talking about the story of Jonah and the big fish. What Do You Know About Jonah? Was he swallowed by a whale, a shark, or just a big fish? What is the context for the story of Jonah? Where was Nineveh? Was all of Assyria an evil place? Was Jonah a great preacher? Was he even a good preacher? Why was this the worst sermon ever? Why was this the best sermon ever? Did Nineveh really repent? When God saw what they did, how they turned from their evil ways, God changed his mind about the calamity that he had said he would bring upon them, and he did not do it. The final verse: “Should I not be concerned about Nineveh in which there are more than a hundred and twenty thousand persons who do not know their right hand from their left and also many animals?” To whom is this question asked? What is this story really about?
