Jonah and the God of Second Chances

Sunday 7 November 2021

Today we are thinking about Jonah and God’s grace to him when he ran away. However when God also shows mercy to the people of Ninevah, Jonah isn’t happy at all.

You can find the readings in the notice sheet, and listen to the podcast of the talk below:

John 18.33–37 33  Then Pilate entered the headquarters again, summoned Jesus, and asked him, ‘Are you the King of the Jews?’ 34 Jesus answered, ‘Do you ask this on your own, or did others tell you about me?’ 35 Pilate replied, ‘I am not a Jew, am I? Your own nation and the chief priests have handed you over to me. What have you done?’ 36 Jesus answered, ‘My kingdom is not from this world. If my kingdom were from this world, my followers would be fighting to keep me from being handed over to the Jews. But as it is, my kingdom is not from here.’ 37 Pilate asked him, ‘So you are a king?’ Jesus answered, ‘You say that I am a king. For this I was born, and for this I came into the world, to testify to the truth. Everyone who belongs to the truth listens to my voice.’
