Course Description:

The story of Jonah is familiar. It is all about a prophet and a giant fish. But is it? This course will explore the book of Jonah to help us see what God's heart is all about and how we can align ourselves to His heart. We will aim to be transformed to be more like Christ as we study His word.

The class will involve learning principles in how to study the Bible and specifically how to study Old Testament narrative in light of the whole Bible. These principles will then be applied through discussion and in-class group work so that we will understand better the purpose of the book of Jonah, be transformed by it and so be able to teach others.
