Although the story of Jonah sounds fantastic, it actually happened. But the great storm, the great fish, the great city and the great wind could not compare to the great mercy that God repeatedly showed Jonah and the Ninevites.

A Note from the Artist

I was attending a leadership conference in 2008 when I heard not one, but two of the guest speakers refer to Jonah. This caught my attention because the conference theme would not have suggested, even remotely, such a connection in my thinking.

The Lord quickened my heart: Here was a story from which Jesus Himself had referenced in the Gospels. It was concise, dramatic, and relevant to prevailing attitudes toward present-day Assyria (i.e. Mosul, Iraq); three qualities that still hold great interest for the world at large today.

The story of Jonah not only piques the intellect, however; it touches the heart. Who cannot relate to the anger over grievous injustice and the struggle to forgive? Or who has not longed for mercy and the offer of a second chance? “But God demonstrates His own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8)
