It’s sad, but we often care more about bad news happening to people we don’t like, than good news happening to us. The Pharisees were like that – they wanted God’s bad news to happen to others. But Jesus uses the story of Jonah to tell them that exactly the opposite was going to happen – the Gentiles were going to receive the good news of Jesus.

Listen to the sermon preached by the Revd Bryce Amner on Sunday 14 January 2018.

The scripture readings are Matthew 12:38–42 and Jonah 1-4.
