The Book of Jonah: AKA The Mirror Book of the Bible

You may be familiar with the book of Jonah as a story of God offering repentance to an evil culture, but the creators of this video would like you to take a deeper, more personal look at this intriguing book.

For instance, did you know that Jonah’s entire “sermon” to the Ninevites consisted of only 5 words in Hebrew? Or that one of the main themes of the book is one of pagans having soft and repentant hearts, which is in stark contrast to Jonah who displays a stubborn and unrepentant attitude up until the very end?

Most importantly, what do you think God is trying to say to us, the readers, through this story? Watch the video to see The Bible Project’s unique perspective.
