What is evil? Do you know evil when you see it? We all think we know what evil is, that we can recognize it, and that we are able to accurately judge between good and evil.
But we see today from Jonah 4:6 that judging between good and evil should be left up to God.
The Text of Jonah 4:6
And Yahweh God prepared a vine to grow up over Jonah, to provide shade for his head, to rescue him from evil. And Jonah rejoiced over the vine; he greatly rejoiced.
In this discussion of Jonah 4:6 we look at:
- The plant that God caused to grow over Jonah
- Why this plant was used by God to deliver Jonah from evil
- What this tells us about the nature of evil
- Why Jonah was so happy about the plant
