Not Available Request an Exam Copy


Designed for pastors, teachers, and Bible students, Jonah, A Video Study, together with the accompanying Jonah commentary in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the Old Testament, brings to light the universal scope of God's sovereignty and mercy. With careful analysis and interpretation of the Hebrew text, professor and scholar Kevin Youngblood traces the flow of argument in the book of Jonah, showing that how a biblical author says something is just as important as what he says.

Each lesson surveys the main idea of a passage, its literary context, its structure and literary form, and its meaning, alongside its canonical and practical significance for us today. Jonah, A Video Study attempts to understand the enduring impact this story has had on culture by building on insights found in the wealth of scholarly understanding on Jonah and Hebrew literature. Viewers will see how this brief narrative has captured the imagination of generations and still has much to say in today's world.
