March 17, 2024 Jonah – A Man on the Run: “Jesus and Jonah”

Jesus did not mention every prophet in the Hebrew Scriptures, though he did reference Jonah and even compared himself to him. Like Jonah descending into the belly of the fish for three days, Jesus descended to the dead to preach the good news and set free captives of the devil. The verse we hear today from 1 Peter 3 is what we reference in the Apostles’ Creed when we state Jesus “descended to the dead” or in similar words “descended into hell.” It is also one of many verses behind the words of multiple Christian creeds about Jesus ascending into heaven and being seated at the right hand of God.
