To know the story of Jonah is to recognize it as our own: God pursues us even as we run from Him. Through this series, we hope to learn the story of Jonah, grow in our awe and worship of God and celebrate the One who gives us a mission.
When we read the Old Testament, it’s easy to forget that the people, places and events were real. This map shows the city of Nivevah from Jonah in a modern context; located in modern-day northern Iraq. It also shows the distance Jonah tried to run from God and the mission given to him.
