In the Book of Jonah, which is full of life and teaching, we have contemplated the life of Jonah the Prophet himself, his concern for his dignity, his esteem to his word, and the astounding lapses he fell into owing to that feigned dignity. We talked also of how the gentile mariners were better than him and how better still were the irrational creatures which obeyed God. We also talked about the Ninevites, and their contrition and true repentance.However, the deepest reflection in this Book is the reflection on God Himself. It is indeed a beautiful contemplation: God in the Book of Jonah. The primary thing which attracts our attention in this beautiful story is God's searching for man.
