The Mystery of God’s Mercy
Pastor Dillon T Thornton - May 19, 2019
Of all the stories of the Bible, Jonah is one of the best known. But of all the stories in the Bible, Jonah has the most unexpected and overlooked ending. Most people think the story ends with Jonah being released from the fish. Some know that after being released from the fish Jonah traveled to Nineveh to preach. Almost everyone thinks the story ends there. But it doesn’t. There’s a shocking fourth chapter to the story, and it’s in this final chapter that the most powerful lessons of the narrative are revealed.
