Jonáš 1

Studovat vnitřní smysl

           

1 I stalo se slovo Hospodinovo k Jonášovi synu Amaty, řkoucí:

2 Vstaň, jdi do Ninive města toho velikého, a volej proti němu; neboť jest vstoupila nešlechetnost jejich před oblíčej můj.

3 Ale Jonáš vstal, aby utekl do Tarsu od tváři Hospodinovy. A přišed do Joppe, našel lodí, ana jde do Tarsu, a zaplativ od ní, vstoupil na ni, aby se plavil s nimi do Tarsu od tváři Hospodinovy.

4 Ale Hospodin vzbudil vítr veliký na moři. I stala se bouře veliká na moři, až se domnívali, že se lodí ztroskoce.

5 A bojíce se plavci, volali jeden každý k bohu svému, a vyhazovali to, což měli na lodí, do moře, aby sobě tím polehčili. Jonáš pak byl sešel k bokům lodí, a položiv se, spal tvrdě.

6 Tedy přišed k němu správce lodí, řekl jemu: Což ty děláš, ospalče? Vstaň, volej k Bohu svému. Snad ten Bůh rozpomene se na nás, abychom nezahynuli.

7 I řekli jeden druhému: Poďte, vrzme losy, abychom zvěděli, pro koho to zlé přišlo na nás. Tedy metali losy, a padl los na Jonáše.

8 I řekli jemu: Pověz nám medle, pro koho toto zlé na nás? Jaký jest obchod tvůj, a odkud jdeš? Z které jsi země a z kterého národu?

9 I řekl jim: Hebrejský jsem, a Hospodina Boha nebes, kterýž učinil moře i zemi, já ctím.

10 Pročež báli se ti muži bázní velikou,a dověděvše se muži ti, že od tváři Hospodinovy utíká, (nebo jim byl oznámil), řekli jemu: Což jsi to učinil?

11 Řekli ještě k němu: Což máme učiniti s tebou, aby se moře spokojilo? (Nebo moře vždy více a více bouřilo se.)

12 Jimžto řekl: Vezměte mne, a uvrzte mne do moře, a utichne moře před vámi; nebo já vím, že příčinou mou bouře tato veliká jest proti vám.

13 Ale muži ti statečně táhli, chtíce k břehu přistati, však nemohli; nebo moře vždy více a více se bouřilo proti nim.

14 I zvolali k Hospodinu, řkouce: Prosímeť, ó Hospodine, abychom nezahynuli pro smrt člověka tohoto, aniž na nás vyhledávej krve nevinné; nebo ty, ó Hospodine, jakž chceš, tak činíš.

15 Tedy vzavše Jonáše, uvrhli ho do moře. I přestalo moře bouřiti se.

16 Pročež báli se muži ti bázní velikou Hospodina, a obětovali obět Hospodinu, a sliby činili.


Exploring the Meaning of Jonáš 1      

Napsal(a) Helen Kennedy

Billy Graham once said that the whole of Jesus' ministry could be summed up in two words; Come and Go.

COME to me, all who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. (Matthew 11:28)

GO and make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:19)

In the beginning of the Book of Jonah, chapter 1, we have a story about what happens when you do the first step, but not the second. Jonah was supposed to go preach the gospel -- the monotheistic worship of Jehovah -- to the people of Ninevah. Swedenborg tells us that the verses in Jonah 1:1-2 are about the people of Israel, who had received the Word - but wouldn't go out and share it amongst the nations.

In Jonah 1:4-6, peoples' spiritual knowledge declines, and begins to perish. It happens both in the land of Israel, and in the wider world.

Here are some key symbolic elements in this account:

- A ship represents the knowledge of good and truth useful for life (a church). (Apocalypse Revealed 406)

- A sea, storm and wind represents Hell and its influence. (Apocalypse Revealed 343[4])

- To be asleep means to be deluded by our own glory. (Arcana Coelestia 147)

In Jonah 1:7-9, the people who lived outside the land of Israel had some perception that their own spiritual knowledge was lacking, and they it had led to a collapse of their spiritual state. As Swedenborg puts it, "the state of the church was perverted among themselves".

When they perceived this, they also came to understand that they needed to reject falsified truths that they were getting from the Jewish church at that time, and pray to the Lord for salvation, to try to restore real worship, real spiritual love and wisdom.

Drawing lots, or playing a game of chance, represents pulling truths apart. (Arcana Coelestia 9942.13)

In Jonah 1:10-13, throwing Jonah into the sea represents the rejection of that hollowed-out church, to make way for a new church. Then, in Jonah 1:14-16, when the people in the boat pray unto the Lord for salvation -- it works! They are saved from foundering and drowning.

What's the takeaway for us? If we're getting false ideas from our neighbors, we need to perceive it, and stop. We need to identify our false beliefs, and reject them -- throw them into the sea. Then, we need to pray for salvation -- and then a new "church" can start in us, too, personally, with renewed spiritual life. And, when we come to the Lord, and experience spiritual "rest", then we can also go share our new true ideas and good loves with our neighbors -- coming, and going.

Here's a link to an interesting (audio) sermon on this chapter, by Rev. Todd Beiswenger.
