Nineveh

Escape: "Two Judges"

Randy Christian

Jonah knew God was a just and compassionate judge—and he didn’t like it.  His response was to give God some instruction—let him know what a real judge would say in response to Nineveh.  By doing this, he not only put himself in the place of judgment over Nineveh—he set himself up to judge God Himself.  But his judgment and God’s judgment had a very different basis.

Escape: "Change"

Randy Christian

Change is often difficult for people.  It is almost impossible for an entire kingdom.  But because of Jonah’s prophecy against the Assyrian capital, Nineveh repented!  Real repentance brings change, and God can see the change both in our behavior and in our hearts.  God’s response to this repentance is predictable—and comforting.
