God’s Mercy on Jonah – Jonah 2


God extends mercy on Jonah when he is at the apex of his hopelessness and our story parallels the parable of the Prodigal Son. We see how Jonah models both the younger son in his direct rejection of the father through rebellion and foreshadow how he also represents the older son in thinking how his religious adherence may earn his righteousness later on in Jonah 3&4.
