Sermon on Jonah 1:4-16, for Midweek Lent 2. The following Lenten series I will be preaching on is adapted from Dr. Reed Lessing's series on Jonah the prophet. Dr. Lessing is professor of Old Testament at Concordia Seminary, St. Louis, MO.
For Next Week Re-read Jonah 1.
1) How is the power of God’s word exhibited in the action of the fish?
2) Why does God stick with Jonah?
3) From your knowledge of the entire book, can you recall the three other times when God provides for Jonah?
4) What do God’s provisions for this prodigal prophet tell you?
