After Nineveh experiences a city-wide revival in response to his preaching, Jonah becomes angry at God in Jonah 4:1.
What do you think about that? Have you ever thought that he should have rejoiced instead?
Well, today, we are going to look a bit more at Jonah’s response, and come to understand that Jonah’s response is actually quite normal and natural. You and I might have had a similar response. Maybe we do.
The Text of Jonah 4:1
1This was evil to Jonah, greatly evil, and he became furious.
In this discussion of Jonah 4:1 we look at:
- The response of Jonah to God’s deliverance of Nineveh
- Why Jonah’s response actually makes sense to us
- How Jonah’s response is similar to Cain’s
