1 - God tells Jonah to preach to Nineveh, but he runs away. A storm comes; the sailors throw Jonah in, and a fish swallows him for 3 days.
2 - Jonah repents and believes
3 - God tells Jonah to preach to Nineveh; he does; Nineveh repents; God has mercy
4 - Jonah gets mad; he didn't go the first time because he didn't WANT God to have mercy! He stalks off and waits for God to destroy Nineveh. God gives him a plant for shade, but then takes it away. Jonah gets mad. God points out that if Jonah can care about a plant, God can care about 120,000 people in Nineveh.
