A Commentary on Jonah Michael Ben Zehabe
Designed to get the most from your efforts. The original Hebrew is the right side, and the English translation is on the left side. Contrast is how light exposes reality. Contrast is how justice exposes good from bad. Contrast is how your Bible presents God’s thoughts. For instance: The gentile mariners are alert with fear—the Israelite, Jonah, sleeps in the hold. The gentile mariners cry out to their God—while the Israelite, Jonah, keeps his mouth shut. The gentile mariners fight for their lives—the Israelite, Jonah, voluntarily forfeits his own. Contrast, contrast, contrast. Do we learn anything from these contrasts?
