After exploring the story of jonah jonah and me will unfold a biblical theology of mission beginning in genesis and moving through revelation using the larger themes of being chosen called and commissioned we will see how god has been inviting his children to be on mission with him throughout the ages. Jonah had enjoyed gods mercy toward israel and he sought it for himself chapters 2 and 4 however jonah did not want god to show mercy to the assyrian people jonah had deemed them unworthy of the mercy he himself had enjoyed.

God speaks the first words in the book of jonah 11 2 and he speaks the final words 410 11 cartoons vacation bible school and most sermons focus on the actors of the story jonah fish etc. When god gave jonah an unpopular mission he complained and ran away in disobedience but when god gave jesus an even less popular mission he humbly accepted and stepped forward in full obedience when jonah fulfilled his mission he did so with a hard heart empty of love for the people to which he was sent
