Series: Jonah: Humor and Hard Lessons

Passage(s): Jonah 1:1-17

Often told as a children's "fish story," the book of Jonah is an example of Scriptural satire that uses silly humor to point to serious truths. Right from the start, the story is full of overthrown expectations and upside-down behavior. In the midst of this whirlwind of action, deep questions of faith, foolishness, and God's power rise to the surface.
