  1. Expect to find Jesus and his story here – what do you see? How is Jonah a picture of Jesus in this passage? Read Matthew 12:40, how does Jesus read this story?
  2. Related to #1, where is the gospel in this passage? Where is the “good news”? What type of person receives the “news” at the end of the chapter? Why is that significant? How do we see human effort fail? Then, how are we left with the final, and better, word of the gospel?
