  • What challenges did the three publishers in the video face?

  • How can the book of Jonah encourage us if we have been disciplined or have lost privileges of service? (1Sa 16:7; Jon 3:1, 2)

  • How can Jonah’s account help us to maintain a positive view of our territory? (Jon 4:11; Mt 5:7)

  • How can Jonah’s experience comfort us when we are experiencing chronic health problems? (Jon 2:1, 2, 7, 9)

  • What did you learn from this video about the value of Bible reading and meditation?
