Pigs and whales – what do they have in common – a blubbering son and a blubbering prophet. In the parable of the prodigal son, Jesus tells of a wayward son who finally returns home and, to his surprise, to the open arms of his Father. The use of the pigs in this parable show us how far down the Jewish boy had sunk. Years before (800) God did a very similar thing in the life of a wayward prophet by the name of Jonah. In this story, Jonah disobeys God and goes down (down to Nineveh, down to the bottom of the boat, and down to the bottom of the sea). Yet no matter how far down Jonah sank, God relentlessly pursued His prodigal prophet. Thus the story of Jonah and the whale is not the story of Jonah or the whale, but instead the story of Jonah’s God. It is not about the plausibility of the miracle of the whale, but the completely implausibility of the miracle of a God who relentlessly pursues His people with all his might. More than a cute Sunday school drawing or fanciful story, this is the story of humanity and God – the God of Amazing Grace.
