Day Eight: Jonah 1:15-17

Day Eight: Jonah 1:15-17

Taking it In Well, they go against their better judgment and throw Jonah into the sea and lo and behold the storm stops. The reaction of the sea when it calms proves Jonah justified. And, the reaction of the sailors when it does is one of “awe,” and not just for the...

Day Seven: Jonah 1:13-14

Taking it In Jonah’s fellow shipmates as it turns out do assume that he is going to drown, so they try to steer clear of ditching Jonah to the sea. Again, this could be an instance to applaud the non-Israelite sailors and it may also point to their recognition that...

Day Four: Jonah 1:5-6

Taking it In It’s probably safe to assume that Jonah’s fellow sailors are not Israelites. They may have been from Tarshish and were perhaps on their way home. Whatever the case, it’s clear that they have more insight than Jonah does. Jonah has gone nowhere but “down”...
Day Eight: Jonah 1:15-17

Day Three: Jonah 1:4

Taking it In Verse 4 picks up from the mild humor of vv. 1-3 and gives us a few nuggets of zesty Hebrew to chew on. You’ve got to love the verb that God “hurls” a “great wind…” As soon as we see wind our eyes should light up a bit. The word is ruah and it is the same...
