This session is from the BibleProject Classroom Jonah class taught by Dr. Tim Mackie. The entire class is available for free on the BibleProject app at https://classroom-beta.bibleproject.com/jonah.
How can a repeated word help us understand what the biblical authors are saying? Repeated words often:
create a theme throughout a chapter
link words that are close to each other
link words that are distant from each other
In this session, we practice finding repeated keywords in different chapters of Jonah and discuss what they mean for the literary design of the book.
