This Sunday we launch into a fall series on the prophet Jonah. The theme of this series is compassion. God’s grace and compassion is the reason we have the book of Jonah. You can find the scripture reference in Jonah 4:11, the very last verse in the book. We begin by providing an overview of the prophetic office by looking at key verses of the New Testament that reveal to us who the prophets were, how they were treated by their countrymen, and what they all had in common. At each point we will seek to apply the scripture to our own lives and situations.
