Anyone Preaching on Jonah?

Anyone preaching or teaching on Jonah might appreciate a picture of the famous whale pulpit in Poland. My kids got a real kick out of this.

    It isn’t even white! What a rip-off!

    By the way, what happened to the “quote of the week”? That didn’t last long…

    Jonah has been a fascinating study for me.

    Here are two very interesting videos pulling much other Scripture together… Certainly, thought provoking.

    Blessings.

    Pete, you continue on a path that saddens me no end. These videos are absolutely enslaved to man-made tradition called rabbinical key-word exegesis. NOTHING is made in the book of Jonah about the fact that his name means “dove.” It forms no part of the story. The entire case that these videos make is therefore based on key-word exegesis, which entirely ignores immediate context, thus creating a pastiche of mostly unrelated texts. This winds up with an interpretation that is almost completely at odds with the actual meaning of the book, and is wholly allegorical. Fish=fishers? This is ridiculous. The maker of these videos makes the whole book to be about Ephraim. The book of Jonah is about a disobedient prophet sent to a Gentile nation against his will. God cares about these Gentiles as Gentiles. The video makes Jonah’s exit from the fish equal to law-keeping, which is utterly absurd. The only reason Jonah gets out of the fish is because the Lord tells the fish to vomit Jonah onto dry land. It is by grace, in other words, not by law. Also, the interpretation of the psalm in chapter 2 is skewed, as well. There is no repentance in the chapter whatsoever. There is thanksgiving for deliverance, but also quite a lot of blaming God for seemingly putting him in this position for no good reason.
