Jonah….Can you imagine being sent by God to your worst enemies? Before agreeing, would you, like Jonah, rather decline the mission to the point of even accepting death? What can we learn about Jonah from this mission? What can we learn about God? What does it look like when anger meets mercy? Where is the justice in God’s grace? If these questions intrigue you, join our Duke summer intern, Hope Ledbetter, for a four-week study of the book of Jonah.

Class meets on Mondays, June 19 and 26, July 10 and 17, from 7:00-8:00 p.m. Each week we will look at a different chapter of Jonah as we walk through the book. Through exploring the text along with paintings that depict this familiar story, we will engage with the book of Jonah and learn more about this prophet who famously got swallowed up by a big fish and lived to tell the tale.
