Current Study - Book of Jonah

This week we begin a study of the Book of Jonah. As we study this book we will seek to make it less about a great fish and more about God's sovereignty, Jesus as the messiah, and salvation by grace through faith alone. We see God's control of all things as he orchestrates a storm that eventually leads to the salvation of the pagan sailors as well as the Ninevites. We will also note how Jonah is a picture of Jesus to come as he is buried for three days and three nights and consequently resurrected. If you have often thought of Jonah as nothing more than a story of a prophet and a fish I invite you to come and learn what else this great book has to offer!
