1) Jonah tried to run away when God called him to be a prophet to the evil city of Nineveh. It was only after being thrown into the sea, swallowed by a giant fish, and spit out three days later that Jonah perceived the wisdom of obeying God.
When Jonah finally did go to Nineveh, what message did he proclaim to the people there?
"Forty more days and Nineveh will be overturned."
"From the north disaster will be poured out on all who live in Nineveh."
Cursed is the man who does not obey the terms of God's covenant."
"The Lord will send four kinds of destroyers against Nineveh, the sword to kill and the dogs to drag away and the birds of the air and the beasts of the earth to devour and destroy."
