A Study of the book of Jonah. When God sent Jonah to Nineveh he rebelled and headed in the opposite direction. Caught in the middle of a storm, the sailors hurled him overboard into the mouth of a waiting fish which vomited him out on the beach in the direction of Nineveh.
When Nineveh repented the reason for Jonah’s rebellion became clear: he assumed that God would forgive the Ninevites and he resented it.
Relentless Compassion speaks to the character of God that pursues his children with His love.
