Episode 1 – Niniveh or Tarshish?

God commands Jonah to go to Nineveh and warn the inhabitants about their wickedness that has reached heaven, inviting them to repent. Instead of obeying the divine command, Jonah boards a ship and heads in the opposite direction, toward Tarshish. However, Jonah fails to flee from God.

Episode 2 – All roads lead to Niniveh

After being thrown from the ship into the midst of the storm, Jonah is swallowed by a great fish. Inside the fish, Jonah acknowledges his mistake and turns back to God in prayer and repentance. After three days, the fish releases him onto dry land, near Nineveh. Understanding the lesson and witnessing God’s intervention in his life, Jonah goes to Nineveh to proclaim the divine message.

Episode 3 – What do you choose?

After Jonah delivered God’s warning to the people of Nineveh about the divine punishment that was to come upon them, the people, in an act of repentance, changed their behavior and turned to God. This unexpected response displeases Jonah, who feels frustrated by God’s forgiveness and the lack of punishment he expected for Nineveh. Jonah faces the decision of whether to show the same mercy and grace that God showed to him, or to remain rigid and resentful because of the mercy God showed to the people of Nineveh.
