1) What or who evokes compassion in your heart? Contrast Jonah's heart with God's heart. How does your heart compare with God's? Does it long for the same things? Why?
2) Is there something that you know God wants you to to that you haven't done? What can you learn from Jonah's life?
3) How did Jesus view the story of Jonah? Read Matthew 12:39-41; 16:4. Will you accept as truth what Jesus accepted as fact - or did Jesus compare His resurrection to a mythological tale?
