Jonah Teaches FearJonah 1:4-16
David Sharir’s Jonah (1971)
Jonah 1:4 But the LORD hurled a great wind upon the sea, and there was a mighty tempest on the sea, so
that the ship threatened to break up.
Jonah 1:6 So the captain came and said to him, “What do you mean, you sleeper? Arise, call out to your
god! Perhaps the god will give a thought to us, that we may not
Jonah 1:5 Then the mariners were afraid, and each cried out to his god. And they hurled the cargo
that was in the ship into the sea to lighten it for them.
Jonah 1:12 He said to them, “Pick me up and hurl me into the sea; then
the sea will quiet down for you, for I know it is because of me that this
great tempest has come upon you.”
Albert Pinkham Ryder’s Jonah
SINNERS RESPONDJonah 1:8 Then they said to him, “Tell us on whose account this evil has
come upon us. What is your occupation? And where do you
come from? What is your country? And of what people are you?” 9 And he said to them, “I am a Hebrew, and I fear the LORD, the God of

Deuteronomy 6:1 “Now this is the commandment—the statutes and
the rules—that the LORD your God commanded me to teach you, that
you may do them in the land to which you are going over, to
possess it, 2 that you may fear the LORD your God, you and your son and your son’s son, by keeping all
his statutes and his commandments, which I command you, all the days of your life, and
that your days may be long.”
Deuteronomy 6:4 “Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one.
5 You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all
your soul and with all your might.
Deuteronomy 6:13 It is the LORD your God you shall fear. Him you shall serve and by his name you shall swear.
14 You shall not go after other gods, the gods of the peoples who are around you— 15 for the LORD
your God in your midst is a jealous God—lest the anger of the LORD your God be kindled against you, and he destroy you from off the
face of the earth.
SINNERS RESPOND“Fear in the biblical sense includes
being afraid of someone, but it extends to holding someone in
awe, being controlled or mastered by someone, worshipping
someone, putting your trust in someone, or needing someone.
The fear of man can be summarized this way: We replace
God with people. Instead of a biblically guided fear of the Lord,
we fear others. . . . When we are in our teens, it is called ‘peer
pressure.’ “When we are older, it is called ‘people-pleasing.’ Recently, it has been called ‘codependency.’” Ed Welch
Jonah 1:14 Therefore they called out to the LORD, “O LORD, let us not
perish for this man’s life, and lay not on us innocent blood, for you, O LORD, have done as it pleased
Jonah 1:16 Then the men feared the LORD exceedingly, and they
offered a sacrifice to the LORD and made vows.
“Jesus is really God’s ‘great wind,’ his ‘mighty tempest’ in response to human running and rebellion.
Jesus is the storm!” Tullian Tchividjian
