Spider-Man: No Way Home Review
"Eventually. What else do we have to see, sunny? Well, so the big movie out this weekend, and the big movie of the year really is Spider-Man: No Way Home. I mean, this movie is going to be an enormous enormous hit. I thought yesterday with a packed house at the Alamo drafthouse near me, audience loved it. Spider-Man, no way home, of course, our Spider-Man, it's got Tom Holland as Spider-Man. And if folks remember the end of the last movie, his identity had been revealed to the world by J Jonah Jameson who was playing a kind of Alex Jones like figure kind of conspiracy theorist, doing a very funny, very funny turn by J. K. Simmons. But this movie picks up right where that one left off. So everybody knows that Peter Parker is Spider-Man, Spider-Man and Peter Parker. He's got to try and figure out a way to get the world to forget about him and he turns to Doctor Strange, who has played by Benedict Cumberbatch, Benedict Cumberbatch, cashless spell that tries to reverse the race the knowledge that Peter Parker is Spider-Man from. Yeah, Doctor Strange should be smarter than this. You would think. He was warned not to cast the spell by his assistant slash sorcerer, the new sorcerer supreme Benedict Wong. And he does it anyway. He cast the spell in it. It messes up the very fabric of reality, villains from previous iterations of Spider-Man movies start pouring into Tom Holland's Spider-Man's universe, the green goblin, doctor octopus, the lizard electro. Hello, Peter. That's a great trailer, by the way. Hello. It's a really good trailer. I'm not giving away anything that's not in the trailer. I'm careful not to either. These are no spoilers here, really. And Peter's got to get Peter's got to get them back to their universe. That's all I'll say about that about a lot.
Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes Resign From Fox News
"Know there's a conservative crack up going on inside the beltway as Jonah Goldberg and Stephen Hayes have departed from Fox News. There's a story at the American spectator about addition by subtraction at Fox News with which I disagree. Molly Hemingway quotes from it approvingly. Molly is a good friend as his mark. Byron York works with both Jonah and Steven Jonah longtime friend of the show, Stephen a's used to be. He drops a nuclear bomb on my head a couple of years ago that I didn't see coming, but I don't know what that's all about. Byron York works with everybody and apparently amicably like I try to do as I quote tamale Lincoln's first inaugural. We are not enemies. We must not be enemies, but friends, Byron, what is going on? Well, good morning you. My official position in all of this is that I wish everyone well. Yeah, you and I pretty much adopt the same view on beltway, penda tree. Yeah, well, what can I say? You're a Fox News contributor. Do you have a conflict? I don't want to put you in a bad spot. No, I am a Fox News contributor. I have been since 2006. And I've been happy to be Fox News. So I think that that's my story right there. And by the way, I am an NBC News contributor though I've been exiled and they're about to breach my deal. I don't know why, but I've been exiled. So who knows what's going on inside of network executives trying to figure out their audiences? I think this all comes down to trying to find your audience and keep them happy. Well, I mean, there's always been this a lot of commentary about thoughts about having almost being like the old broadcast entertainment networks. In the sense that they had the news division and then they had entertainment programming. So people said, well, the prime time program on Fox is kind of like the entertainment programming and the special report and approximately Sunday in the whole daytime, really are all about the news division. I think that's unfair because a lot of news is made during prime time on Fox. But clearly it's opinion driven and clearly Steve and Jonah became increasingly uncomfortable with the prime time programming. So I am not sure what to say beyond

Poland Imposes State of Emergency on Belarus Border
"A state of emergency has been declared by poland along its border with belarus. The government in warsaw claims that the belorussian authorities a pushing migrants in poland direction. There's also the added problem of upcoming military exercises led by russia but opposition politicians have pushed back against poland's move saying it's disproportionately tough joining me. Now from warsaw is johanna chin guy. Who's a political journalist for reuters. Good morning jonah. Morning just tell us. What's the situation. So currently poland had been well parts have been in a date of emergency since last thursday at the border right. Now there's a lot of military they're they're continuing to build a border fence And media and ngos are no longer allowed to be in that. Three radius of epa parts of the border. Do we know as a result of the fact that we have a media blackout on this but do not see what's happening. It's difficult to tell for that exact reason because there's no longer media on border her.

"On mountain mountain. The boat lands on a mountain and he built alter and all of a sudden he just like hair starts acting like a priest. The priest you like nose clean from unclean animals and then he offers this like offering right of the book of leviticus like this guy and you always smells the offering aroma. Just like he doesn't lucas. And then y'all had a conversation with himself. He said you know what i'm never going to do again. I'm never gonna curse the ground on account of humanity here. You know what i know about. Humans they're no different from when i just did the flood. Look did you see that Now how many are there around. And and the guy is offered a sacrifice. And god's like oh no no different this no. This guy is going to be different. So here's what. I'm never going to do again. I'm never going to do the thing. I just did. Why did god do the thing that he just did. Do you remember the story how it began. Why did god bring the flood. Genesis sixers five humanities. Only if all the time. So i was. He has come and he sends the flood genesis. Eight twenty one. God smells the sacrifice and says you know what i know about humans. They're only all the time. So what i'm gonna do is never send the flood. Did you get follow the logic. It's a reverse logic. The reason that god brought the flood is now the reason why he's never going to bring the flood and what's the difference in these scenarios. No offered a sacrifice so no. It's very strange story. The thing that is different is god has chosen a chosen. One and this chosen one makes an act of intercession in this case a sacrifice and that sacrifice becomes a hinge point in god realizes humans are not going to change so therefore my tack with him has to change if i destroy humans for their evil. Guess what no more humans can see. What's happening here. So the very reason the god brought the flood is now the reason why god will never bring the flood and so what on earth would compel god to do this. Well it seems like there's a couple of things going on all the way back on page one member that Thing we're gods said. You know who. I wanna rule this world with forever and ever never humans. We know that's page one. That's damon god's goal so if he destroys all the humans that's not going to happen so god is honoring his intent on page one to rule the world with him forever and ever but Now we've got a. We've got a problem because the humans that he wants to rule with a really bad and they build cities the blood and the cities of blood. Just keep escalating and escalating violence and so on. and so. here's what's going to bring. the turn of. The tide is a chosen one rescued through the waters. Who will offer intercession. Who will offer a sacrifice and god says i accept the sacrifice and i will no longer give humans what they deserve tracking with me this story so important for the storyline of the bible. So what that leads to is. In genesis chapter nine the rainbow in the sky and so on is god makes a covenant. Promise that he's going to carry his his redemptive purposes forward. So right here. We've got a story line from eden to the rise of the city of violence to a chosen one rescued from divine judgment on the city. But then that one offers key intercession at the climactic moment. And god says you know what i'm going to spare and show mercy and move the covenant redemption storyline forward welcome to the storyline of the hebrew bible. This just gonna get worked over over and over and over and over and over again. So that by the time you get to the book of jonah. We can now not just retell it. We can explore it and creatively invert. Everything imagine story where your chosen. One is actually worse than the people that he's supposed to intercede for and imagine a story where the people list post to intercede for. Don't actually even repent for very long and word. Is this rest thing about going through the waters. This is really foundational here. Can i think of other people rescued through the waters. Yep israelites joshua's generation will go through the waters of the jordan into the land. It's all this is all connected you guys. So if we had time we would do is walk through the story of abraham. Let's let's just walk through. The template abraham's invited into what land good land of blessing in abundance does. He encounter a violent city. Outcry rises up to god. Yeah he does. What's the name of that city. Yep sodom in genesis. Chapter eighteen the outcry of sodom and maura is great and their sin exceedingly grave. It's like it rise up to god so this chosen one is Let's see oh actually who gets rescued out of the judgement on sodom is it abraham abraham's nephew lot so then lot becomes the one rescued out as a flood of judgment because of why because abraham gets in god's face here and says listen let my nephews there and there's other righteous people there and you don't kill righteous people right and god's that's right and so you know like abraham thinks god's going to be stingy here well what would you do it for fifty. They're not bartering here. If they were bartering right god would like they're trying to meet in the middle. God just gives the moon away here fifty righteous people in the city. Yes yes good says forty five forty five forty thirty yet twenty ten and then it's over and are there even ten. There's not even ten but notice here in the story when ga abraham is interceding on behalf the city of blood. He's like noah. he's not offering a sacrifice he's just invited into the council of god to make active intercession. Okay let's follow through another another iteration. Can i think of another time. When god's people were invited into the good land it's actually a kind of exile down in egypt. there's a famine in the land. but where's the good land sink. Ocean ferro says come to the good land so they end up in the good land and then let a few generations pass and then what happens if becomes the city of blood and so we read in exodus chapter to well first of all what is faira say. Kill everyone with in the waters. Kill everyone in the waters except one little baby who does get thrown into the waters. Yes except here's the thing is that his mom saw that he was good little baby his mom sees that he's good and so she puts him into what screen so new american standards had wicker basket. The word basket is the word. Arc arc teva appears in two stories in hebrew bible story of noah and right here so no is put into a little mini arc. And he goes through. The waters doesn't he. And then it's precisely is going through the waters that lands him into the pharaoh where he becomes the downfall of pharaoh so this is interesting at the end of exodus chapter two. In the course of many days the king of egypt died and the sons of israel side because of their bondage. They cried out and they're cry. Rose up to god. This is abel's blood. This is the oppressed of sodom. and more. see how this works here. So who's the chosen one rescued through the waters. So it's moses. But then what is he gonna do with all of the people then. All the people are going to be rescued through the water. And again of relevance for the book of exodus chapter fourteen when pharaoh chases after them right into the waters. What israelites say. This is so good. Yes totally they say. Isn't this the word that we spoke to you when we were back in the land of egypt pause. Isn't this what we said. A long time ago when we were back in the place where we wanted to be it would be better for us to serve the egyptians than to die in the wilderness. Just tuck that line away. Took it away standby. Don't be afraid for today. You will see y'all way salvation. Salvation belongs to ya. And so what does he do. He brings a wind and that wind parts the sea so that in the midst of the sea they pass through on dry land. So now you've got all of the chosen ones. They go to mount sinai. We could go on. I need to find a way to land this play. But i can't resist the toogood. They go to the foot of a mountain..

"The bible to read and you get a. There's too much to do here when the narrative picks up again. Who do we meet. But some of the strangest characters in the bible genesis. Six people are multiplying on the face of the land. Oh yeah yeah. Through the line of seth that replaced cain replaced able and now through the line of cain and his murderous city. And we we've heard some about them. Here's something else that happened in that day. The sons of god which is a standard reference in the hebrew bible for spiritual beings spiritual beings saw the human daughters of men were in hebrew good and they took for themselves wives. Whomever they chose they saw that something was good in the took it this whole sentence is mapped in hebrew. Right on to genesis. Three or six. The woman saw that the tree was good. The light to the is desirable for wisdom and she took from it. So this is going to be a key design pattern in the hebrew bible to signify. This is a fall moment. the is somebody failing. They had great opportunity and they're failing so the spiritual beings are having their their fall moment. You had the humans in the garden being tempted by spiritual being and now you have spiritual beings being tempted by human women. Do you see the inversion of genesis. Three woman and the snake. Now you have spiritual beings and women. So here's the crazy thing that happens. Is genesis six verse three the rabbit hole step around the rabbit hole here God says that from this moment forward hundred and twenty years and whether he's talking about the lifetime of humans or the amount of years starting the countdown to the flood. Two different options there. I think the second one's more compelling the point of the narrators would. He really wants to tell us you know. There were giants neville lame. We're in the land in those days and you know also out of these marriages between the sons of god and the human daughters came to give ordering mighty warriors old. Do we just read something about a mighty warrior of old. Oh yeah it's one of them who built the city of babylon nimrod. He was gay board. Here's a mighty warrior one of these violent warrior guys. He's like cain he's like he's like the mutant offspring of the sons of god and women and he's the one who builds the next city after kane. This is the second city being built after kane and then also what does he build niniveh so dc. There's a somebody wants us to watch the development of human civilization being built on the blood of the innocent violent warriors who found cities on the blood of the innocent human human history right. This is what tap this jona won. One go to nevada that great city which is tied into this legacy that comes right from the fall in the garden and kane and so what regularly happens. Is humans build. The city of blood. An outcry goes up to god in god acts and does something about it. No genesis six. So what happens after this moment with the spiritual beings. Y'all way saw that. Humans are really on the hebrew word. Here you learn it. And like the first week of hebrew the word evil or bad or isn't hebrew raw in english. The word evil has a philosophical layer of like natural evil inherent evil moral evil and rock can refer to that rock can also refer to a circumstance situation that hurts people and to is raw so in other words in hebrew the word raw is more focused on the outcome of a ross situation and so usually raw situations are caused by people who have raw intentions. But sometimes you can also use the word rod to just refer to something that happens to you. We just english well. No we don't say. I had an evil. We had a bad day so raw sometimes mean but means bad some depending on context. Sometimes it means evil. Be relevant for the book of john. Okay so now. We saw the the raw of humanity was great on the earth and the every intent of his thoughts was only raw all the time so the lord was sorry that he made humans on the earth and they teach you this word which is of utmost importance for the book of jonah to be sorry some translations have regret. Do you ever regret maybe in right there. In genesis six maybe some translations have regret. Some of your translation might have to change one's mind so we'll start with that it's the hebrew word nam nam. The lord hummed that he made humans on the earth and he was grieved in his heart so he always said. I'm gonna block out humanity that i've created on the faith of the land from hugh beast to human man animal from the birds of and to the birds of the sky. Of course not the fish there are going to be defined four. I com that i even created them except one guy. There's one chosen one. Yeah no walk. So god knock comes over all humanity. Except noah he hums except noah you get it. It's the same hebrew letters it's a word. Play yeah okay so this track. Just follow that. Follow the themes here. You guys we've got an eden like setup we've got some kind of act of violence or fall or evil. We have the building of a city. We have an outcry of innocent blood and that rises up to god yes Then we have chosen one. Yeah who's rescued. How is he rescued in the. That's gonna follow right here through the waters. Yes rescued through the waters. The flood and then check this out is going to be rescued through the waters. he's told Look at this genesis. Six thirteen the end of all flesh has come before me. The sentence that must be made over humanity has come up before me very interesting phrase the end it was the blood of abel that came up before him in genesis four. Now it's the end of humanity. A death sentence as come up before me because the earth is filled with hamas violence gonna ruin my world. Have to clear my world of these violent creatures except for you so make the arc familiar story so just to register a couple things. The reign of god's judgment falls on the earth for forty days. Forty nights fast forward. No gets off the boat. He and his family are saved. This is genesis chapter eight and no it gets off the boat. What's the first thing he does is what can enable were doing. He built an altar. And where is he. He's on mountain mountain. The boat lands on a mountain and he built alter and all of a sudden he just like hair starts acting like a priest..

"Not gonna make it very far in the session. But i think some things will open up for us if you recall in the tanakh organization. The prophets has kind of two main sections it traditionally these came to called the former prophets. Which is the first four books. Joshua judges him kings and then the latter prophets which what we typically think of the big three as they jeremiah zeki oil and then the scroll of the twelve. So what's interesting is the twelve minor prophets in christian tradition. They never existed independently on a scroll as we have them. They certainly began life as independent works. But at some point they were brought together. And we're themselves hyperlinked together as a work on a scroll in a very similar way until a point out some of these think of it in terms of works within works within works collections of collections of collections. And what we just saw in the organization of the macro collection is diverse sections. The torah joshua malachi the beginning of psalms those have all been coordinated together to circle around key main themes that are repeated. So just notice as a pattern of communication how that works then. It means that any time. I'm in one section of these writings the tour of the provinces writings. I also need to be aware simultaneously of the whole thing at the same time in other words when i read dude around me. Thirty four mean three sentences at the end of the torah. But when i'm in those sentences i'm also simultaneously thinking about malachi and how the whole thing fits together and so that's this literature works that way. The whole context needs to be brought to bear on every individual story. Say the book of jonah but then the book of jonah will also begin to informing give me perspective on things other things in the collection as well. Let's look at some examples of that if you look at the first of the book of jonah. I've got multiple translations open here for the first sentence. Should we read the first sentence. 'cause that's about all we're gonna get the word of your way came to jonah son of army tie saying let's just pause when you see lord and all capital letters. That's translations signalling to us that. The hebrew were four letters of the divine name revealed to moses so in some jewish traditions. A couple of hundred years before. Jesus people stopped pronouncing the name allowed to reserve at sacred honor and so mostly fell out of pronunciation and so the word lord in hebrew came to be swapped. It people would say it. Say the word lord which is uh tonight in hebrew and so that tradition is carried forward in our modern english translations. Not too many people are offended by saying the divine name. some messianic jews are and then some traditional jews are but i personally found it to bring fresh energy to my own reading of the bible to say the divine name because it was put there. I think to be read when moses and the prophets about these tax so that's a short little thing right there so the word of ya came to jonah some time. Now there's something hidden here if you're only read the new american standard. There's something hidden that you'll notice because english translation doesn't clue you into it if i turn say to the english standard version yes Look at how they render the for sentence. Now the word of ya came to jonah son of amitai saying do you see difference. What is now turn to just begins with the and iv an rsp. Now now this you might think mountain out of a molehill right here but this is significant and don't be afraid of show you the hebrew tech's jonah opening sentence. You don't have to remember this at all but that letter. There is the hebrew letter valve. That's the word and in hebrew or while in and depending on your pronunciation volver while and in hebrew the word and doesn't ever stand by itself you attach it to the beginning of this of most medic languages. You attach the word end to the word that it's in front of so the first word is by. He and it came about the word of y'all way to joanna. Here's my point. The book of jonah starts with the word and it's a connective conjunction. So you just tell me the difference. Between the word of y'all way came to jonas von matai and the difference between that and and the word of checking in other words if and is there. It presumes a bigger context. I'm continuing something so to start a sentence with the word and means there's something before it that you're connecting it to presuming a larger context so it's just one observation to make you might think it's minor and perhaps it is the second observation the were and the word of ya came to ben amitai. Who's that if you just take the book of jonah by itself and you're just like okay. Am i supposed to know who that is. You are supposed to know who that is. Because this figure appears elsewhere in the collection doesn't so already in the book of jonah in the first sentence of the book of jonah word and it's like little thread stitching the book into a context. The book of jonah doesn't float by itself in the old testament. The first word of the book stitches it into a preceding context. The mentioned of jonasson of amitai he. He appears in the collection yes. You appears in second kings. He appears elsewhere in the prophets in second kings chapter fourteen. I already knew this was significant but actually prepping for this class. I realized just how significant this little story is. We're jonet pills. We're going to spend some time here. What we hear is about a really terrible king named joe bom the second. Here's what god did for this. Really terrible king y'all way saw the affliction of israel that it was bitter there was nobody bond or free there was no helper for israel. So what did he do. He saved them by the hand of jerem and he restored the borders of israel. Back to what they were in the days of. solomon well. that's a very nice thing to do. For what kind of king a terrible king and who was the prophet there speaking this promise of restoration blessing on the wicked king. You'll nice of me time so we also got then here in. The book of kings is another appearance of jonah. Already in the first line of the book we're hyperlinked into the school of the twelve with word and we're hyperlinked into the prophets and his role in second kings gets us thinking about Yeah god sending profits to do good things for people who don't deserve it. I wonder if that has anything to do with the book of jonah. God sending a prophet to invite people who don't deserve it into blessing. That's interesting go back to the book of jonah. The word of the came to jonasson of amitai saying hey get up go to niniveh. The great city niniveh the great city. Have i heard of niniveh before. I have heard of an nfl before. Here's what's interesting if you're reading in the book of kings that story in a second kings chapter fourteen Jonah announces that the borders of israel will be expanded which was always a sign of blessing for israel when their borders are expanded. Jona announces that that's going to happen for this wicked evil king in the very next chapter. It's all going to be reversed in the very next chapter. We are introduced to the second kings. Fifteen verse twenty nine. In the days of pekka king of israel. He's after jerry. On who joan coincided with who come showing up to town taking everybody captive and just like annexing the land of israel..

"Reflections at this point just a sidebar. Why is it organized. The way it is because this wasn't just thrown together it was thought out and so i agree with you. Said organization is preloaded with assumption. So could you speak to what assumption led to this because these are people that studied a new scripture. And we're putting it together so we don't know the earliest manuscripts that reflects the organization of our modern. Bibles are greek manuscripts from about the fourth century. Ad christian greek manuscripts that are codex. Kota aziz coaches so the question is is this a christian invention and what you can do is then look at how early christian scholars and writers referred to the scriptures and you see again evidence even earlier than that manuscript of this kind of organization so it's murky as with many things in history. Most of us aren't concerned to write down a lot of the things that happened. In our day to day lives. We live our lives and there are all kinds of mysteries about what happened to you. A year ago that even you lived through and have forgotten and so much more in the history of the jesus movement so the hunch of a lot of people smarter than me. And it's my hunch to after spinning. Well thinking about. This is the moment that the jesus movement became multi-ethnic which is awesome. And what it was supposed to do but a neglect and disdain. For the jewish heritage of the jesus movement set in like within a couple of centuries and all of a sudden things that are valued to messianic jews are seen as not of value to gentiles gentile believers and essentially. It's a the jesus movement losing touch with. Its jewish heritage. So it's a pretty broad comment to make on it. But i think it sustained by the evidence so that if you encounter i mean. Nobody's owning a bible like this until like the post reformation period. This is only five hundred years old that we all have our own bible scriptures community property even in the early jesus movement and so very few people have even a whole collection of scrolls much less control over how their ordered. And so you can just see how it would happen. So it's one of the things where man that's crazy but there's all kinds of stuff like this in church history crazy stuff that set in early the is not good habits and they get have to learn you know later on and We'll just have to take that up with jesus at some point. I don't know but here. We are jesus to bible this way. We're tracking with it right now. So let's here we are. It's a new day. Move forward as far as your questions concern dallas. And i'm wondering don't you think it is by divine design that the same condition exists in our world today as it did in the time of christ's first coming so when the jews when christ comes is the jews responsibility to proclaim his coming. There are given a very specific prophecy. That gives them an idea of when he would arrive when this messiah would come pre jesus or you're talking about pentecost when jesus comes as a baby right the jews their job is to proclaim his coming to the rest of the world and at that time period they had lost sense of what their own scriptures were were pointing to. Do you think it's by design. Perhaps to caution us that perhaps that would be the state that we would be in upon christ's second coming as christians. We are the ones who are to be. Oh boy you know there might be some people who feel feel comfortable making that kind of assertion. I don't just because i feel i. I don't know what god is thinking. I've got access to this and like trying to intuit what jesus is calling me to do like in my family and my street. And that's that's enough for me. You know like macrey. History of god's purposes. Yeah there is a pattern and the book of jonah. Is this pattern. The people that god has chosen to work with on page one. It's humans are extremely frail fallible creatures. Who seemed to get things wrong almost immediately and the next moment he calls another guy were. We're going to do in the next session. Noah same thing delivered through the waters and he messes everything up like right after he gets off the boat after doing one thing right and then same. With abraham almost immediately gets it wrong in the spread after he goes to the land and so that's the pattern of humans are constantly trying to scheme up our own way of bringing god's kingdom in blessing to the world and the kinds of characters who actually become the vehicles of his kingdom are those who precisely come to the end of theirselves and undergo a kind of death or an actual death. Welcome to the book of genesis. Th the book of jonah is telling us to not expect that much from humans but also to expect new creation through a human that will have to come for this whole mess to be sorted out. The book of jonah is almost like an. he's an anti moses. He's an antichrist in a way he's an anti cya he's exactly the opposite of the kind of profit that we need to bring a resolution to the story and so i think there's value in watching hero stories. We're like the the hero overcome challenges. And i don't think i'm gonna make it and then rescued at the end but there's also a value in stories of people who have all this potential and then they fail and then they fail even more and then they fail again and then it destroys them. There's called tragedy and the bible values tragic portraits. They're all over there. The cast of characters of literate littered cast of right of failures. Which is most of them. But they have moments where they're at their best some of them in the case of joanna. We'll have hardy debate whether there's any moment in the story where he's getting it right but yes. Thank you whether that's true in the president. I'm not sure but the longer. I've sat with the scriptures. The more i am some would say a pessimist. Some would say realist about my own nature and humans in general but not to make us pessimists about the course of history i think is to put our hope in someone other than ourselves that makes sense at all. I was actually going to say. I think you did answer the question. By showing the that there is a patent and that is that god's people do go off the path constantly and god has to bring them back for the mission to be successful. You should have just said that. They wouldn't have had on that long long rent. Yup that's exactly right. The bible trains us to expect humans to not be able to do on their own. What really needs to be done which creates exactly a divine human slot for a character. Who will do what only god can do. But as a human the incarnation is not a surprise twist. It's the only possible solution by the time you finish the hebrew bible. Yeah at least. I think so. And perhaps that's why the reminder to meditate on it day and night that it gives us intellectual dependency. We never step outside of a moment thinking. I'm going to make this happen. Like i'm going to reverse the narrative for sure not like you see time and time again of Faithfulness and rebellion reminds us that the only thing that will survive. I think is what i'm hearing. Is that okay. No my demise is just around the corner. So i need him. I need to be looking for that. Greater profit the threat yeah and new creation life from the dead devices we end up in pit. We'll see monsters. Thanks but yes. That's our fate because that's that's the world we live in a selfish stubborn humans and sea. Monsters kill us before time but with the god of the story. There's a there's another possibility out and the book of china. We haven't even read the first word but we're going to do that at the beginning of the next session Let's pause that the big macro saying on the hebrew bible where we're going to see is these patterns and we're going to see a lot.

"They'll be ashes under the soles of your feet on the day that i'm preparing that's intense. Hey everybody remember the torah. Just a register. this don't forget the torah moses. Everybody you remember the torah and then all the commandments attach. You don't forget that next point. I'm going to send elijah the prophet before the coming and fearful of the way and he's going to bring revival and restoration between the broken generations of god's people so what have i got in common here i've got. Are we talking about a prophet to come. Yeah so okay. We're talking about a profit to come. The prophet here is like we're given the name. Elijah what are the profits that went to mount sinai in the hebrew bible moses and elijah remember. They both went into that cave. They both have experiences of the way but very different experiences but that are also similar. We're gonna come back to both of those stories. There are very important for the book of moses. So we have a prophet like moses the prophet like elijah and he's going to bring restor restoration so the torah and the prophets and with a foreword pointing anticipation about how we need a profit around here. Prophets do prophecy into god's divine council. The here word. From the lord that god wants to speak to his people but then we've also got this thing here with joshua one about a lead spirit filled leader who will lead people into the promised land and if i'm looking for the next part of the collection what scrolling my turning to now as i opened the writings right. Think of the torah of moses the prophets and the psalms so just real quick and we hear about this blessed righteous person who is the opposite of corrupt distorted human beings and what is the source of him walking in the straight path. He's just a total bible nerd. He just is constantly reading. The torah meditating day and night. You recognize that phrase. Let's verbatim from joshua chapter. One forbid him. He's like the tree of life of perpetually fruitful tree just like in genesis one and in everything he does he has success this verbatim from jesuit chapter one. So we've got a story here. Emerging on the largest level of this collection out of the storyline of these writings some things should be clear to. You is a reader you finish the torah and what you should think is. Did we need a prophet like moses. He's the only way out this mess. The only way we're going to get into the promised land because we're gonna sit here in the wilderness for a long time. Actually we need a better than moses. Don't we most. But a better than moses because moses failed alongside his successes. We also need a new elijah. Who was a prophet like moses but also unlike moses and instead of interceding for the people he had suicidal death wish on mount sinai can think of any other prophets up suicidal death wishes after they have the opposite of allegedly had amazing success on mount carmel and he ends up fleeing to mount sinai and he wants to die. Jonah has an amazing success. It his prophetic career. And he also ends up going outside into the wilderness wishing that you could die so what's up with that. There's something going on there. Isn't there so. All of a sudden joan is brought into the orbit of the macro design of the themes of of the tanakh joshua one in psalm. One focus our attention in on a number of other portraits of one named y'all way brings salvation and this blessed one the righteous one who meditates on the scriptures and is so transformed and connected. The god's own life this one becomes a tree of life to all the others around him someone actually. This isn't a class on the book of psalms psalm. One and two are joint introduction to the book of psalms and some two is all about a king from the line of david that god has appointed to subdue evil among the nations and to bring god's kingdom over them so we've got a joshua david moses and elijah and this is just at the seams of the collection here so somebody wants a. Somebody's inviting us here to see. And these narratives patterns were characters imitate previous characters. Moses story becomes a template for the later prophets and they're either like hammer unlike him in different ways and joshua becomes a template of character that gets replayed david and he's unlike him and mike. I'm in some ways. And then you get jesus in matthew chapter twelve. We looked at this. Where he compares jonah to someone called the son of man whose son of man. Where's getting that. who's this character. Why is he talking about himself. In third person and we'll he's getting the son of man from key chapter in the book of daniel where daniel saw a son of man figure daniel seven verse thirteen and the son of man was getting trampled by the beasts of the earth. The are the kingdoms of the earth but gun vindicates him from the realm of trampling and death up to the divine throne so he goes out of the realm of death into the realm of life and vindication to be given dominion and kingdom over all of the nations so we can rule all the nations. Are you with me here like okay. This is the paradigm so it's always about one basic thing. This is a really diverse collection of literature from all over. Israel's history representing stories about all these different characters. But do you see. In these editorial links and ingenious conception there's just one basic storyline getting replayed over and over and over and over and over again with all of these creative variations in every new story. Just turns up the anticipation more and more and more. So the by the time you leave the hebrew scriptures. I think we're supposed to have in our minds. You know we need around here we need an anointed one who will go through death on behalf of everyone else who keeps creating a world of death and then out the other side so that life you turn. The life can be announced to the nation's that's what the kind of thing we need to have happened around here and so my Invitation would be to consider that this actually is what the hebrew scriptures are about. This isn't just a christian. Rereading of them or imposing a jesus filter jesus really means what he says when he says guys do read it. Did you read it because if you read it the way it's supposed to be read your won't be surprised reflections at this point just a sidebar. Why is it organized. The way it is because this wasn't just thrown together it was thought out.

"You think jesus is unaware of the negative portrait of jonah. Go of course not so. He knows that at a very un like a stubborn rebellious prophet was able to bring about the repentance of sin city ancient world. He knows what the story is about so you can see what he's doing here. He's turning the whole story inside out as a way of looking at this present moment. So here i am a greater than jonah and you all can't even like match the fights in fact you. There's almost something here where he's a. It's as if he's jona. And they're worse than jonah and they're worst than in invites. Jesus did like kung fu master right here. So that's just the dinovite stuff but then check out this verse. Forty the sign and all of this is assigned to them. What does that even mean. It's a sign. Here's the sign that you get. You hate me and reject me. That's that's the sign that you get. Let's just go with the second. Half of the comparison. What are referring to the son of man being in the heart of the earth. What's he pointing to hear pointing to his death and resurrection. Who's going to kill him. Who's going to get him killed at least the people talking to. So here's the sign that you'll get you're gonna kill me because you're like worse than jonah and your worst than innovates and then he brings in this journey getting swallowed by the sea monster now notice. It doesn't say well now. This is interesting because it's not the word whale the greek word the he's citing here. It's the word k. Toss will it later in the course. It's the greek word four-seed monster. It's they have a perfectly good word for fish in greek. And this ain't it. It's the word monster. So jesus conception jonas swallowed by a monster of the deep and his journey through the belly of the monster is like unto jesus journeys through death and out the other side. Do you can take long cup a long walk and many cups of tea and just think about what jesus is doing right here. So this is what. I'm talking about when jesus thinks about the torah prophets and the writings and he thinks about one and a half pages that we call the book of jonah for him. We're we're instantly into the core themes of the nation's israel's role before the nation's jonah is like this some kind of a way for us to think about rebellious israel but also a way for us to think about some inverted version of what israel is supposed to be a prophet to the nations. And then here. We are with this three days through death into life on the other side again. So here's what i'm after. I wanna read my bible like jesus. Does i wanna see what he's seeing. Not just in the places where he mentioned that. I want to understand the whole thing this way.

"Because it's it's going to be about the whole thing so just pas again quick thoughts or comments at this point i love the image of the cardboard like when you mentioned that the book was cardboard because i think sometimes we we are just so eager to have a tidy understanding but forget that god has given us so much more credit and understanding how he reveals himself like even how jona ends with a question. Like like gods like. Let's talk about this. Like i don't want you to have a tidy understanding you and i we can be much more deeper and much more complicated. The knight yes the in other words the content and subject matter of say. The book of jonah is really rich and deep and complex. And it's not easy to simplify the moment you simplify. You've distorted it right and parallel to that is the way that the book of jonah communicates the medium of that. Communication is itself a really beautiful and sophisticated form of literary art that the biblical authors developed. And so it's we're back to the symphony. I'm actually not a huge classical music fan. But when i hear symphony i feel like i ought to appreciate this more. Really my introduction to complex music happened. Through getting addicted to the nineteen sixties era of blue blue note jazz artist john coltrane mobely thelonious monk and it was the first time i began to appreciate music that i couldn't make sense of immediately and then to go on and learn. Biographies of these were brilliant. Musical theorists and for them it was about math and science and the shape of our ear and the way that harmonies and lack of harmonies their minds on a million things. Compose a that. Most people never even imagine when they hear it on the radio and symphonies were the same way. in fact. they're a much older moore developed tradition of doing that. And that's exactly great metaphor for how this literature works. You can read it with your kids and the main point is clear but someone invites us to consider something namely that somebody whose life is going to be shaped as the life of the righteous someone who lives in tune with god and with neighbor. This is someone that's the result of somebody who's joy is meditating day and night pondering the scriptures over the course of a lifetime so if something is going to require a lifetime of daily pondering and reading my hunch is the. There's some depth here like extreme depth. That i never even thought to imagine before and this has been my experience and it's probably yours as well and when you get in tune with what it's really about. Humans turned into the tree of life with someone is saying humans. Turn into you get in tune with eternal life when you meet the person that these texts are trying to connect us to so yes. Immense amounts of depth moscow to affirm affirm your. Yeah just going back to what we're about to dive into. I think it's biblical how you're putting forward for us to study the text. I think god tells us how he would like us to study his word. So we don't get off track isaiah twenty eight if it's okay. If i read it it says whom shall he teach knowledge. And whom shall he make understand doctrine. Then that a weaned from the mill and drawn from the breast for precept. Must be upon precept precept upon precept line upon line lineup online here little and they're a little for stumbling lips and with another tongue. He's speak to his people and it goes on but and then he gives as quite amazing. He gives analogy. He says well. Would you start to so before you plow or he makes no sense for us to bring our own minds to trans study. The mind god and which is why we begin with prayer. Be invite the mind of god tune his word for himself. Yes yeah thank you. Yes yeah the threat. We're meeting another mind. We're hearing the voice of and other. Which means i have to fight really hard to make sure i'm not just hearing my own voice. Echoing back to me which really easy for that to happen. And then it's easy if that happened for a whole group of people to hear their collective opinion reflected back to them and so it takes hard work to actually listen to another voice. Doesn't it yeah. So that's the basic the basic point. That i wanted us to ponder how we can i think get on back get back on track in our own reading habits and goals of pondering and studying the scriptures but also thinking about the context that you're in in your ministry or church or neighborhood or family and what does it mean for you to embody this kind of relationship to jesus in these tax and then to reflect it and model in a way that invites invites other people in going back to the book and also the versus that you read that that wrote paul wrote to timothy just makes me think that that the book left out the part that teaches about loving people that are different than Sorta have sin against us or that. Don't even care about guy. So now linking that with i if we're not careful what i'm understanding from us if we're not careful we are always going to create new and different kinds of people that we can create the wrong new different people or we can become the wrong new and different kinds of people someone who can be hateful spiteful or everything goes. I wonder if you could speak a little bit into that. No that's right. The the bible will exert influence on people no matter how he read and understand it. It's that kind of text in western culture. many i think eastern culture still. I only know my culture so to speak to my cultural context. Which is the modern west. The bible still exerts an amount of influence. The question is what kind of influence and yet. That's right that's right. The bible shapes people in communities in co culture still. The question is are they shaped in a way. That's faithful with what these authors are actually trying to communicate. And what jesus said this is about the stakes are not low right but i also get like sweaty and nervous when i think about how high the stakes are so. I try not and i just tried like with you. Just trust that. God will lead.

"Would you suggest the same approach to Hebrew a practicing jew that knows the hebrew scriptures. But there's not a follow. Jesus when it comes to talking about who. Jesus ooh yeah. I think so. Yeah the hebrew scriptures are the heritage of now multiple religious traditions abraham acc- traditions particularly so judaism first chronologically than christianity is an offshoot and then islam so these are three really influential. World religions all have some reference point to word. The hebrew scriptures are but in each of those traditions. The meaning and significance of the hebrew scriptures is very different. It's a different story. Leading to a different fulfilment so the pattern of what you see in the first generation of the jesus movement is messianic jews. Going to their family and friends and saying like you guys. This is what it is actually about. So it's a contested clan. But it's a claim that i think is amply demonstrated when you see things from that from that point of view this will come up more than once the biblical literature especially the hebrew bible his intentionally written in a very dense way that lead you on a journey of deeper understanding and so on any journey of understanding. You realize you're developing your point of view and your understanding changes over time and so it's kind of literature that doesn't bunk you over the head with its meaning. It asks us to give a lifetime of reflection onto what it might mean so. That's a challenge that children's books. Just they don't let anybody that challenge they filter it out in dismay crystal-clear we'll come back to that deeper questions again and again we talk about the story. Yup other thoughts. You've said it multiple times when you look at jona you're looking at this whole story of the scriptures but beyond just being embedded in the old testament scripture you can make that case for any book in the old testament are there specific things within the context of jona that you're making that that claim yes and we will look at them at length. We'll look at them at length a baby to just say it initially and this is still. This is something i am in a new discovery mode over. The last few years is that the hebrew scriptures are really diverse collection of literature but they have been coordinated so that they really are all about one basic thing and one basic storyline and jesus thumb is on it right there. Humans are really screwed up. We need an appointed one. Who will be human on our behalf. the family that god called to raise up that appointed one ends up being just as human as the rest of humanity and so that family has a very fraught and complicated relationship with the creator. Such that it leads them actually into death and out of death out the other side so that they can fulfil the mission that god has called them to all along. That's what the hebrew bible is about. And when jesus grew up on this at some point which is a moment we don't ever quite hear about it. Dons on him that it's ultimately going to be carried forward through him. I mean just imagine that you wake up with that thought. Yeah you have to imagine yourself into that space but yes so. That is the claim. I'm making and We'll see how the book of jonah works. yeah thank you. It's good scriptures we read Brought my mind to revelation. Fourteen chapter fourteen. John says that he saw an angel. Flying in the midst of heaven having the velocity gospel to preach unto them that dwell on the earth and to every nation and and tongue m people. This lost gospel. I believe is what essentially you're referring to and i would be surprised if we came back to that chapter in revelation. But he's absolutely right. We can make that case for every book essentially including the one that gives us the conclusion views of all the others. Yeah that's right yep correct. That's good. I like that image in eternal gospel based on that bible study that jesus had that room the reason why followers of jesus have throughout centuries kept the first three quarters of their bible. And it's a complicated relationship with the first three quarters of the bible. There's a lot of sex and violence and really difficult stuff that followers of jesus had a hard time to know. How does that fit into the bigger picture. But orthodox both jewish and christian traditions always said we have to wrestle and honor the portrait of god and god's purposes. they're here and in the christian tradition because they're about the one thing that here is called the eternal goodness. It's about one thing. And it's precisely when we don't have a framework for what that one story is that we don't know what to do with the book like jonah once you don't see how it plugs in then it's just like what is this here for weird story about a guy and a fish and then know it's weird. He praise from a fish. It's like really beautiful poem from fish belly. That's strange that's weird. Why should i care about that. And so i don't know how to make sense of it. So let's drop out the prayer and drop out that stuff about being suicidal because that'll disturbed children so let's just creative. You know what i mean. Let's create rewrite the story as a nice moralistic tail. Because that's what religion is for after all this to make people good right. So it's it's an honor struggle. But it's all a symptom of not knowing how to read these texts. The way that jesus read and understood them and he was trying to teach his followers so in a way. It's way of saying we need to recover why it is these texts even matter to jesus why they matter to the movement of his followers and why they have relevant enduring relevance still for us today not just to give us narrative illustrations about how to be a good person but they actually explained to us who jesus is and who we are and who got is and what on earth word we're doing here. Yeah thank you and eternal guests a good image. I'm gonna keep that one. Thank you for that. yes so when. Jesus has the opportunity to to summarize the hebrew bible in a sentence he says the messiah must suffer and rise from the dead on the third day. And i've been following. Jesus for almost twenty three years and i've talked to a lot of christians from a lot of different backgrounds and when i hear them talk about the hebrew bible the old testament and summarize it..

"I'm sending upon you what my father promised. So you guys stay here until you're clothed with power on high. This is great. This is ending of the book of luke. This is a hyperlink forward to the next volume in luke's to work series right. So it's a reference to acts chapter two with pentecost and the coming of the spirit. So why should i bother. This is an answer relevant to followers of jesus. Somebody's not a follower of jesus. The conversations different hope. You see that the implication here but once somebody is compelled by jesus interested in him and they want to understand him more and in greater depth so they can follow him apparently for jesus that means learning how to reckon with the first three quarters of this book and specifically about his identity. As israel's messiah deliverer abou a suffering and rising a death and a recreation of life connected with the third day and that israel's messiah is to go through that experience precisely on behalf of and for all of humanity is hold you see that israel story that opens out to an all nations story that repentance and forgiveness be experienced all the nations so just stop her here just think jenna in israelite representative suffers brought to new life on the third day so that repentance and forgiveness of sins can go out to all of the nations. Are you with me. There's something happening here now. Jesus only talking about one part of the bible. He's talking about the whole thing for him. This is what the whole thing is about so whatever her any individual part of the hebrew scriptures are about for jesus they all are brought together in this common storyline. Every part of it connects as united whole into one story. The leads to him and then goes out from him. And you can just see a bare outline of the book of jonah here. Can't you an israelite who suffers recreated on the third day so that the nations can repent and be forgiven. So here you go to talk about. The book of jonah is to talk about the whole of the hebrew bible and it's to talk about why the hebrew bible matters to followers of jesus no matter where and when you live today so for me. This is kind of like anchor-point to ground zero for why anybody should care about the old testament. There's somebody is not a follower of jesus. Don't talk about the old testament. Talk about jesus and like let's let's get to that point and then once somebody's compelled and curious about jesus. Then it's like well. Do you want the full back. Story mc thoughts questions..

"Let's talk about that. Let's talk about that. So someone made a judgment call that the actual story isn't relevant for children or that. It's too complicated to explain. Follow this through. What this version of the story of jonah about think about how jona works. It's a story within a story. So it begins with god calling a prophet jonah and it ends with a long unfinished dialogue between god and that prophet jonah embedded within. That is a story about god and niniveh. This version has done is. It's mostly made it about god and then uva and joanna is just an instrument isn't he because the goal the end of the story is jonas preaching the word of god and niniveh so that becomes the resolution to the story and if the story ended at chapter three. This class would be a lot more simple to teach a lot more simple. So there's something about a fraught complicated relationship got has with his own covenant people that's the subject of this book and apparently kids can't handle it and especially like it's only a page in half it's a quarter of the story is miss you know. Okay thank you. It's good observations other thoughts or observations along those lines It's very one dimensional. It doesn't talk about repenting. Sin all of those other themes that. Come in the come up in the real book. Yeah that's right whether it's none of us. Evil that's needs to be turned away from or exposing the that the fact that the hero is also anti hero at the same time. Yeah that's right and it's a cardboard book so it's for four year olds but i don't know. Is it too soon to start teaching your children. That were all quite complicated and a mix of a good novel. I don't i don't think so. I think that's actually pretty important. Grasp right from the beginning it also seems that it left out chapter two and left chapter four but it seems like the whole story. They've encapsulated just one in three. Yes yeah that's right. That's right odd so yeah do observation their first of all. Just god's angry so he ends up in the ocean and they're just happens to be there so whereas in the story is very different. God has to marshall half the forces of nature to get his prophet to do anything in the story whereas here. It's just happy coincidence. The whales and then and then it's about poor jonah. Yeah so we're missing an opportunity to talk about actions and consequences and then the fact that you can repair with god even after poor actions that lead to terrible consequence but all the same good observation other thoughts. Yeah i've i have two thoughts. When he's the paint jonah as a victim of all the way through like all these things happen to him and he had nothing to do with it in my other thought was that i have two little ones who are eight and four and i read straight from the bible. The book of jonah to them just the other night. They seem to completely get it. I mean i understand. There's a there's a depth to it that they're not going to understand. There's life experience component and enemies and forgiveness and things that you're not going to understand is a child but they they understood what it was saying. I don't i don't think they have to have it. Watered down to this level to be able to say. Oh that's all that a four year old can understand so this is a great sampling again. This is a grievous example. Maybe the most grievous. I've ever come across but i think it's important because it represents a larger set of issues doesn't it that the bible is big. It's complicated after many years in pastoral ministry. I understand the need to simplify a meet people. Where they're at and i i think that's fairly intuitive thing. If you're in any ministry context meeting people where they're at it's in human language so god is meeting us where we are at inches by that fact alone at the same time however are are we actually helping ourselves or anybody else by revising and rewriting the story in ways that make more sense to us in how we represent it to other people. This is the one of the biggest challenges. I think and trying to invite people into the bible isn't it you want to find ways for it to connect with people but at the same time. There's a danger that in any tradition that we enter into the bible it really just becomes an echo chamber and we only hear what we are already expecting to hear what we've always heard before because we don't even know how to no one's taught us how to reckon with what's actually there and understand how these authors communicate and what they care about and so on and so jones is such a great example of this but you could translate this basic principle into how any biblical story gets taught in any religious community right so for example the and this happens with the most controversial bible stories. Think of page one of the bible right page one of the bible. There's a very important conversation happening at least in modern western cultures about the kind of universe we're living in and whether or not there is a beautiful mind that's behind all of this. That's a really important conversation. But unfortunately what. Somebody was trying to communicate through genesis. One has been hijacked by a much larger debate about the material origins of the universe and how those processes and timelines and mechanisms happen. That's a really important conversation. But what has to do with what the biblical authors were trying to communicate how those are different. And so what we ended up doing is bringing our agendas into the stories. Rewriting them sometimes just because of a bad editor and oftentimes unintentional. And then sometimes because we just don't know what to do with half of the weird stuff that's in here whether it's the talking snake or all of the sex scandals or all of the violence or the weird stuff that god says and does you know and so it becomes a little easier. Let's just go to the jesus part and he says a lot of crazy stuff too. So let's just kind of focused on the things that maybe don't freak us out so there you go. This is the largest set of issues. what my goal is for this class really isn't just about the book of jonah. It's to be about reckoning with biblical narrative and.
"jonah" Discussed on The Bible Project
"A class on your favorite book of the bible. Perhaps the book of jonah. It takes up a page and a half ish in most bibles and trust me. There's more than enough for us to explore in course however it is just a page and a half so it's actually the perfect kind of book to take a class on because the class will both be about the book of jonah but it will also be about the whole battle because that's apparently how jesus conceived of the story of jonah but also the way the book of jonah works. How it communicates what it's doing in the bible in relationship to everything else. Studying joanna actually becomes like a crash course in how to read the bible in general how to read biblical narratives how to read biblical poetry. It has it all the only thing. That doesn't have as one of the letters of paul in it and so but luckily there's a whole section of the bible that you can learn to do that when you actually get to paul but within jona is a microcosm of all of the beauty all the potential but also all of the challenges that the bible represents to its readers so before we do anything What we need to reckon with as we dive into the book of jonah that religious media specifically christian media has already reached the world over with the story of jonah in creative and sometimes unfortunate ways right so some of the most just to at least if in a western context in the nineteen ninety s. There was a whole cartoon series about talking vegetables. You may or may not be familiar with. And this was veggietales immensely popular tv series and dvd series and so on and so i kind of spinning off of biblical stories or biblical character traits. That kind of thing but there. I like motion picture. Splash was the story of jonah. This was in the early nineties. So you may or may not remember this but this is the kind of thing i'm talking about where the book of jonah exists in the popular imagination before the actual story that comes from the bible has ever connected with people. This is why it's a good example. Because this is true of a lot of the bible the bible gets mediated to people through specifically religious media and so it starts to shape these categories. the bible is a kind of children's literature or at least biblical stories are for kids because stories are universal right. They can connect with everybody. And so it creates this mentality at least in some jewish and christian traditions the stories. Well they're for kids and the real stuff is in jewish tradition. It would be in torah in the laws of the torah. Or maybe the prophets in christian traditions would be in the gospels. Or maybe just in the letter a paul. So one of my jobs in this class is to thoroughly abuse. All of us of this notion. The book of jonah is one of the most sophisticated one and a half pages in your entire bible and it's not at all a children's story. It's much much more like a really complex. Beethoven symphony that anyone can sit down and enjoy and experience it but for anyone who wants to learn finger to about how like symphonies are actually composed just infinite layers of depth in complexity and beauty and sophistication right on down and so as you think about your own ministry context you know or maybe you don't have a ministry context. Maybe you take a class online. And you just want to learn about the book of jonah because all you know about it is the fish right and actually it's not a fish in the popular imagination is very clearly a whale. So this is one example of ways that the story of jonah as an example of biblical stories in general they come to us preprogramed and part of learning how to read. The bible is both an un- learning so that we can truly learn what these texts are actually trying to save the movies actually very entertaining just as a you know. It's not a bash on the movie. However what i will be happy to bash on is one of one of the first classes that i took at a christian college that i went to in biblical studies was a how to study your bible class and it was an introduction to how to read biblical narratives and poetry and it was whole semester on the book of jonah so it was one of the first books of the bible that i learned when i was learning how to read the bible so i took that class changed. How i see everything I've got a number of the books up here that i was introduced to As i took that class and a couple of years. I ended up being teaching assistant in that course for other students and so someone gave me. One of my students gave me a children's book. Version of the story of jonah. That i would like to share with you. I've kept it all these years so we can all see it. It's it's a little cardboard book. That's about this big so i'll just show you the version the version here but it's one of those little lift flap books right so it's not just it's like the double double thing right so this copy is thoroughly loved because i let my one to two year old son abuse the book and chew on it once he could actually understand the story. I took it away. Because i want this to shape his view of joe but an introduction to the story of jonah. Yes why not okay. God is looking for joanna. He wants jones to preach so we lift the flap. There's jona he's afraid of god. Jona hides from god behind a tent. He'd see my son's like slobbery teeth marks there on the tent. A town called japa- is by the sea. There's no see in the picture. But i trust that it's by the sea right. It looks like it's in a town. Called job is by the sea. That's where jonah tries to flee rhyme on that one yes good. A crowd of people wait to board. A ship is jona there. Yes he is on the ship. Jona tries to escape. But god sees him but the ship is tossed. In-store me water. My son bit off this flip. It says the ship is tasked stormy water. While joan asleep when joan awakes. He sees god's anger throw me to the sea underwater a wail swallows. Who are jonah. Three days later the very happy whale spits jona notice incorrectly spelled three days later the whale spits jona onto a beach well then at last jona returns to preach the word of god. Hey guys doing well. This class was amazing. You so what more do you need to know. Yes so first. Let's just let that register and the point isn't trash on a children's book. This is a symptom. that's all. This is a symptom of a much greater set of issues for how our culture and how specifically christian culture has related to the bible over the years. I want to hear your observations. And let's think about the larger issues that they represent paints. God as angry and joan is afraid of god yes angry chasing somebody and they're afraid We're chapter four Yes okay..
"jonah" Discussed on The Bible Project
"Hey this is. John and this is tim. And this is the bible project podcast in. We just got off a little break. If you're listening in real time we did five rerun episodes and we're back yes. Yeah it was nice to take a break. We've never done that in the podcast before but it awesome excited about what we're gonna do for the next few weeks. We're going to release a short series. Which is actually going to be Listening to you doing a class on the book agenda so if you've been listening to the podcast for awhile you've heard us talk about the bio project classroom initiative for probably a couple of years now been talking about it slowly taking shape last year. Yeah so the basic idea is We've been filming seminary level classes here at the bio project studio. We get a small group of students in a room and start reading books of the bible together and then we film it and then it gets edited and chopped up and put made the online learning experience with interactive exercises and discussion forums. And it's still in beta mode but we've got a number of classes up on a website. Now and the book of jonah is one of it is and we wanted to put on the podcast. Some of the very first lessons from the book of jonah. Because it's really great material able it'll wept. What your appetite to do the class I'm just excited to be able to listen through it They're six students in the class. So you'll hear them pipe up but Tim tells a little bit about this first set of lectures. And what will jump into. Yeah well first of all jonah is like the most credible short story ever It's amazing little book. What's great about. John is the know. It's very well known tail. You know entered the popular culture and literature even if somebody's not religious they probably know. There's something in the bible of at a guy getting of I'm sorry a fish. Oh it's right. It's not called a whale story. It's called dish and then if you look at popular retelling of the story like children's religious media the books are shows what you'll notice is that usually they are heavily rewritten versions of the story. That have changed it redacted. You usually to focus way more on the fish than the story does and often leaving out the whole last chapter of the store for reasons that we'll talk about in this episode. What's great about john. It's a heavily ironic story One of the main points is about. How god's own people can become gods biggest obstacle to his purposes in the world. And so in the story the jonah. He's like an anti hero. He's an anti prophet. Who's called to speak out spokesperson but ends that. Becoming god's antagonised in the story is full of humor. Twists reversals whole theme. About god's mercy and relationship to god's judgment all the big questions that we have come to the bible and it's all packed into four short chapters. So let's listen in on this class on the book of jonah. Thanks for joining us here. We go welcome everybody to.
Christians Are Being Persecuted and Driven out of the Middle East
"Talk to us about the situation in the middle east the flip side of the global war on terror that really isn't adequately discussed either. What has happened in syria. In in other parts of the middle east like iraq in the last twenty years since september the eleventh at the tarnow the twentieth century across the middle east we had approximately twenty plus percent christians that were living in various pockets. Lebanon has right now per capita the largest christian community but you had him living in iraq. You had him living in syria In turkey and whatnot well as we progress through the twentieth century with the various wars and the uptake. In some of these terror groups christians began to leave and larger numbers Since the war in syria for example in two thousand eleven when it started there were three million christians living inside syria. Today we have less than two hundred fifty thousand take iraq for example in mosul. You have the tomb of jonah. The prophet joan on you have to of the minor prophets name. All of a planes is well known in the bible. So these are all old jewish and christian lands and Christians are being driven out Left and right not only by sunni radicals but also by shiite radicals why because iran wants controlled. They want that fertile crescent. Go an open door from modern day. Iran in through iraq syria all the way out lebanon. So in this in this divide you've got a sunni shia clashes and and and in these clashes. Not only. are they fighting each other. But they're also pushing the christians out. The christians always take the brunt of everything

"Stabs at dude. Here's the thing again. This movie's way better. If 'cause she stabs the student the gut if she fucking took that knife. And just jack that dude right in the crotch with us now use your fucking rancid. Vic there is lush she perpetrate some nut trauma a little later in the film when they when they were escaping the main climax she she's actually got a fight scene it's fine. It's not great but she hit some guy in the nerds but it so dark and the the editing is for shit. I can't tell if she cut his dick or shot at or what. Oh really. I didn't even notice that it's on the boat. You mean yeah weird Megan fox by the way it considers this to the worst. She's ever been in. Which really is she as. She's probably right and be that's really saying something she's been in those transformers movie is a turtle movies. Yeah and she's not a bad actress at all. She's been a lotta shitty movie. No but like when you look at those movies bad such as they are to varying degrees and whatnot at least they're like competently may work following the things you can understand understanding the transformers movie by the time merlin gets involved. You're right well. She left before merlin. Good on her and she was like i can. I can smell a merlin coming. So michael bennett comes in beats her up and takes her away and like again. Foss benders trying to be menacing here with this irish accent in the bowler lang do as opposed to just sort of glare at the camera. That'd be something. I also don't understand how they are aware of his relationship rate crash on the lila character megan fox. It's just a go to that bar that he hangs out at someone's gotta know something. I have no other ideas. I fucking hate this movie. Wait what if. I had a great idea. What if instead of trying to kill her. What if i tried to find jonah. Hex killed him instead. What if what if that made more sense. Yeah but we need the damsel. Mikey he damsels. Yes tardy tar off. I go off to kidnap a woman. There is jona hex like rolls up to like the encampment. Or whatever where they are. They're getting the boat ready to go This is post the kidnapping and everything. And there's another moment here where i was like. This would be rad as faulk. But we don't see anything. He kills dude by throwing an axe right into his face. Yeah yeah nothing absolutely nothing. Pg thirteen we want. The joan had action figures to be sold and iran. Because what this also starts doing you realize business. Especially where i was like okay. Clearly troubled production. Ville right here. 'cause you're getting things like west bentley. Just unceremoniously murdered by john. Malkovich malkovich gets the last piece of the thing from him. He's of no use to him anymore. And it's just like completely dispatched. You don't see it happen. It's like a gun shot off camera. it's it's like they cut its westbound lane. Got a picture of them there and back of his behind him. They cut to some other guy. And you're both the click and the shot and you're like oh so bentley had a different death. That was probably cool. You're totally right. This is yeah. He says Oh they'll hang me for. I hope we got i of tried to avoid that. Malkovich like consider line consider. It avoided also wine animation director. My wine goblet has a deed. John the line is whatever. Animation director cut pred lunch. I think upriver pervert wine boy to animation. But yeah i mean the end of this is so money like the action of one. They infiltrate his boat. And like jonah hex fuck it all sorts of shit or he is it all sorts of up but his lady is there. Yup so then. He asked to give up because she she ruins. Everything is this. When does he fight. michael bender. Here that's what he wants on first right as they're getting on it's like act in the face guy at an endless fight with michael fast bender which is nothing i mean he kills him and but this was one of those like cut that dude's head off you know doesn't happen the only kind of cool thing in the struggle though there. It's it's it's interesting enough. I mean it's a fine moment because it's he Michael foster says what is the life to what is it like to go through life with a face like that. He says. Let me show you. And he sets his own hand on fire yeah had starts punching him in the face with his burning man. I guess i'm done for the rest of the movie by heads. They'll seriously it's not a superman of now And then he grabs Fosters faces put to do it like a steam engine or something like that or propeller propeller of such fucking guys. Jam it like the fucking so you pushing the face towards the thing and he clearly. The face went through the fucking propel us. They cut back to berlin clean as a whistle. No blood spurt. You couldn't do a digital bloods. But there's not even damage to fast spender. Because what happens is he puts his hand on him in wake some backup from the dead and then as you see it. His face is totally find. Looks like beautiful michael and then he uses like the old. Because you're live again. You're getting and he just like he starts burning. And then josh brolin punch him in the face and he turns to a cloud of ashes was when he kills him the first this for my wife initially for bestowed. And are you ready to fall malkovich's like that's my life i've got a good deal go with those fellas around here is where i guess Will arnett is unceremoniously killed. They've got another one like Us naval ship trying to block them. I mean first of all just opened fire. Just bring down the might of the government on this shortly carrying the nation killer that it's just like hey surrender. And then they arm the nation killer and use it on this boat instantly. Vaporized really see a reaction. I would love to see some bodies in water. Well don't you see the eric. It's because he's proper and he wanted to do wore the white right way. Yes exactly. i'd love a good will net like you cut back on that and it's like mother. Yeah arrested develop show jobs body. Charred made a huge mistake. Yes me as this naval commander. I demand to be taken seriously. Oh fuck so then. It's like here it is like. Here's the big moment. they do start launching. Cannonballs like into dc. Because malkovich has some line about like fire. Fifty cannonballs which wouldn't make sense to me the number us anyway fifty states yet so i guess it's just a lot okay. Yeah i mean he could have said like all thirteen for the original but again he's not a political figure in any way despite fighting tooth and nail to the death for the confederate question mr turnbull. Oh so we're going to attack this nation ceremony with all these Friedman there But we're not. We're we're still not a racist out of it we you yes i promise. That's how i'm reading it earlier. We mentioned like someone like ed harris. Maybe as like the siesta pre new president. Maybe someone from europe bankrolling show..

Really did what they could bring me back. But they couldn't get me all out then. They found this cool moving from nineteen. Ninety-two what called the crow. What if we did that instead. They are just entered it from blockbuster video and it was on incessantly in the background while they did their larryelder trying to put that white face paint on me and i said no thanks crow indians to the point i was just singing that kershaw. Every night i burn every dream knocked the crow dream. Yeah man so do that. Brand like burn through his face the idea no at bir he. It burned on his face and then he was so mad about it. She took a takes a hatchet and then burns into his face and burn it off on thing. Here's my thing with jonah hex dude because they show them later. There's only one saloon. Seen which i think is fucking criminal in this kind of moving up where he goes and you drink whisky dribbling out or whatever dude. Do yourself a favor cut that overhang like it's going to hurt. You know what i mean. Then you've got full mouth motion just cut the overhang. Maybe then the mouth would be too wide grimace. Yeah you're also gonna rip the back part more if you knew what just favor the other side of your mouth. Yeah like spitting whiskey at your whole. What are you doing you fucking idiot. You don't see have eaten. I want to see him like eat. Chicken wings like that would be very different. He puts the whole vibe eats it whole spits the phone out the whole dude. Yeahs formed garfield. I hate mundy's like oh man that's sexy. Imagine what he could do to me. Really love my i town. You and lasagna. Oh interesting hilarious detail. It's in this same like monologue about him. Being rescued by the native americans is. He's like oh and by the way. I heard rumors that John malkovich burned in a hotel fire and they cut. This is it is. It is the worst looking visual effects of like a hotel like front phase. John malkovich sitting in like a front window tune to this is the part of the motion comic thing where it's like probably wrote a scoped but starts with like you see these in a chair and it's like like freeze frame promos and then it's like it just reminded me of. This is fine me. He's just like yes. This is fine. I mean this hotel fire. I went to go see this cool. Old west band called great white and i sat down. I don't know he rolls into town. Undis- undescribed town. We don't know anything about it. He's dragging three dudes behind him and this was kind of the only cool move in the movie like he pulls up to the sheriff's office and the sheriff's like this big fat dude. Well jonah hex. The bounty was for three we own receive and he throws a fucking bag at this dude. And it's the guy's hand these like air last too fat from a horse to brags orders. Cut his head off for proof of death. This is the best thing in the movie because it's basically just bounty law yes. Jk and it should be more like this. I mean except for this. Obviously the whole town is against him like well jona because actually your bounty is higher than anyone of those gentlemen. So now we're gonna get. You got like some terrible line. That sounds like they're trying to do like a charles bronson thing but it's now working out it's like oh you got there. You've got five coffin there but don't you need eight brought to horses too. Many he's actually kinda surprised that jonas could do. Addition that quickly yeah but also like they try to give him like wise cracks even later on in the film when he killed someone he's just like i'm all out of wise ash answers their friends. They have a single one. They were just answers. They weren't wise movies getting tired. It's so i can't be funny. I'm sorry i tried many times. My name is james brolin's trying very hard to be fun. I can't do it. We were then treated to this shootout. That is instantly ruined by one of the absolute worst film scores. I've heard it's really bad. The metal also how. It's really dumb. That jona hex has to gatling guns attached to the horse that were somehow like hidden the horse. It almost looks like you don't see you see these things.
