- Lots actually working!

- It's also interesting that Jesus used Jonah as a picture of his own death and resurrection - the little signs than were woven together to make the picture of Jesus.

- And Jonah's going off track led to people being saved, and in spite of everything Jonah did that was wrong, he managed to be brave and risk his own life, to be brave and speak out about God. Although reading Unlocking the Bible, possibly Jonah's reasons for running away were less being uncaring/cowadice and more thinking that if God showed the Ninevites mercy they would think Him weak and continue doing evil. But my awesome Bible scholar friend was the one who did the sermon talking about God using Jonah's mistakes and Jonah being scared. But that was pre-Bible school. But they knew tons before then. So WHO KNOWS.
