If I say “salvation is from the Lord,” what do you think of?
If you are like most Christians, you think of how God forgives your sins so you can receive eternal life and go to heaven when you die.
Well, the phrase “salvation is from the Lord” is found in Jonah 2:9, which are looking at in this podcast episode, and we will see that it means something quite different from what many Christians think it means.
The Text of Jonah 2:9
But I will sacrifice to You with the voice of thanksgiving; I will pay what I have vowed. Salvation is of the Lord.
In this discussion of Jonah 2:9 we look at:
- The last verse of Jonah’s prayer
- How Jonah continues to praise himself and condemn the sailors
- How we continue to see Jonah’s self-righteousness in his prayer
- What is meant by the phrase “salvation is from the Lord.”
