Episode 209 The Limits of Mercy (Jonah 1, 3, & 4)

November 1, 2020

This week BibleWorm turns to the book of Jonah, chapters 1, 3, and 4, where we meet God’s most reluctant prophet. We wrestle with why Jonah runs away from God and why he would seemingly rather die than go to the land of his enemies to prophesy. We think about who counts as “God’s people” and what it means that sometimes the people most responsive to God’s call are the ones we think of as outsiders. And we compare the limits of God’s compassion with the limits of our own, recognizing that sometimes God wants to reconcile the very people we might consider our worst enemies. Also, Amy tells us why she sometimes calls her children “Jonah.”
