Comparing Jonah to Jesus in Luke 13:34-35. “Jonah grieves that a repentant city shall be spared; Jesus grieves that an unrepentant city must be judged. Jonah laments the prospect of loss for his people that could be brought about by the salvation of heathen sinners; Jesus laments that even the surrendering of his own lifeblood will not bring salvation to Jerusalem.” O.
