Jonah 1:1-17

Fill-In Notes:

  1. What kind of people have you come to believe are too “evil” or “wicked” to receive God’s mercy?
  2. Have you ever experienced (or seen) the way God sometimes uses affliction* to get our attention? What happened? 

a. *v4 …the Lord hurled a powerful wind over the sea, causing a violent storm that threatened to break the ship apart.

3. It’s easy to believe that God was punishing Jonah’s rebellion by arranging a fish to swallow him. How is it more accurate to interpret the fish as God’s mercy instead?
