The Book of Jonah

153 The Book of Jonah

Is Jonah myth?  Is there any truth to the book?  Does it even need to be true to apply Biblical principles?  Jonah is probably one of the most controversial books of the Old Testament.  It has been challenged by theologians and scholars for many years as to his authenticity.  Yet, Jesus quotes this book at one of His most pivotal times in His ministry.  Additionally, the message of salvation speaks so powerfully in this book.  This course will cover:  the historicity/authenticity of the book; God's work in the world at that time; the purpose of Jesus' use of the book; the Gospel application of the book of Jonah.
