From the artist:

I learned the story of Jonah as a child at summer Vacation Bible School. I was taught that Jonah was a young prophet called by God for a big task—a task so big that Jonah ran in fear.  While some of that may be true, in recent years, I have learned another side to the story.

What I did not know as a child was that Jonah was not necessarily afraid of his call, but was reluctant to show his enemy grace. Jonah did not like the Ninevites—those to whom God had called him to prophesy. They were brutal people. Why would anyone want to give such brutal and violent people a second chance?  

Jonah’s hatred of the Ninevite people led me to include the figs, which are a biblical symbol for Israel, and the whale, a symbol of Jonah’s deep resentment, encompassed by Jonah’s testimony about God (Jonah 4:2). In this verse, Jonah confesses to God, “That is why I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love.”

This story is about a man who was reluctant to forgive and a God who is so loving that grace and forgiveness are the only option. It’s a powerful truth.

May this story, and Jonah’s grudge, remind us of all the ways in which we need saving. May it remind us just how good and compassionate our God truly is, for not a day goes by when I don’t need that same unrelenting grace that God showed Jonah and the Ninevites.
