I wish I was teaching Jonah again! ::

Tyler Williams has begun posting about Jonah, the book he's teaching for Hebrew class. I love teaching Jonah, and it's years since I've had the opportunity, I used to teach a course on "Hebrew Short Story: Ruth and Jonah" I think (except possibly teaching "Amos" in Kinshasa, Congo) that was my favourite course ever. Two lovely short gripping books. How I envy Tyler our new curriculum has me teaching nothing but Intro classes and Prophets or Justice in the Bible. Don't get me wrong I love the rhetoric and poetic power of the prophets, and ever since I fist yelled "It's NOT fair!" been passionate about justice. But I miss the stories...

Anyway, the lucky Tyler has a good post on resources for studying Jonah. It's aimed at a Hebrew class, so is of fairly solid academic level. So, for any readers who want a lighter look, more focused on the narrative technique I'll give myself a link too: see Study Notes on Jonah
