Discussion Questions

Here are some questions that we hope you'll take a few minutes to think through and answer.

  • Read Jeremiah 10:1–10 and compare the worthless idols with the true and living God.
  • How does God reveal His sovereign control of all of the lives on the ship via the casting of lots?
  • When Jonah reveals that he worships the Lord, how is he being both sincere and hypocritical? In terms of what Christians believe and practice concerning the Great Commission, how might it be possible for a believer or a congregation to be both sincere and hypocritical in following the Lord?
  • Today, it is considered a good thing to have a private faith, but it is looked upon with suspicion if it ventures out into the world all around us. What does this passage say about such an approach?
  • How does this passage demonstrate that being tolerant of other’s religious beliefs does not mean that we accept those beliefs?
  • What acts in the story demonstrate a process of real conversion on the part of the sailors? Is it unreasonable for churches to expect believers to demonstrate evidence of conversion? Why or why not?
  • Jonah seems to have embodied the spirit of the nation of Israel that he so loved. She, too, boasted an impressive outward profession, but a life which flatly contradicted it. What should this say to us as Christians?
  • What are some ways in which Jonah’s account resembles the account of Christ in Mark 4:35-41? What are some ways it differs?
