The Church Before the Watching World

The subplot of Jonah’s story is his relationship with the sailors on the ship to Tarshish. The sailors rebuke Jonah for not using his faith for the common good. When his behavior alters, it creates a change in them. Too often the church is like Jonah: asleep to the people standing right in front of them.

This sermon was preached by Rev. Timothy Keller at Redeemer Presbyterian Church on August 5, 1990. Series “Jonah”. Scripture: Jonah 1:4-16; Philippians 2.
