Wait a Minute, Who is Following Who in Jonah?

All in all, the contrast in this scene between Jonah and the sailors (Jonah 1) could hardly be stronger.  The proud “Hebrew” and self-proclaimed God-fearer has shown rash resistance to God’s authority, character and purposes.  The pagan Gentiles, meanwhile, consistently demonstrate sensitivity to God’s sovereignty and supremacy, as well as  to the sanctity of human life.
