Jonah 3:1-5,10

Jonah is the archetypical reluctant prophet. Earlier, God has called him to “Go at once to Nineveh ... and cry out against it; for their wickedness has come up before me” but he has tried to escape by sailing to the ends of the earth. God has punished him by having a large fish swallow him.


1 Corinthians 7:29-31

Paul has written that, in his opinion, the dawn of the new era is close at hand so this is no time to complicate one’s life by changing one’s status or taking on new earthly responsibilities. One should devote all one’s energies to serving God.


Mark 1:14-20

After being tempted to misuse his power by the Devil, Jesus has returned to Galilee. He now begins his public ministry with words that summarize his mission.
