The book of Jonah continues to be about God's sheer mercy. God first shows Jonah mercy so that he might show Nineveh mercy. Then God pours out His Spirit through the preaching of His word and thereby awakens an entire city to the reality of God, judgment, and salvation. God's anointed message coming at God's appointed moment is irresistibly powerful. May the gospel awaken Athens also!
