Jonah and Jesus sleeping in the boat during a storm

I love the story of Jonah.  The childlike transparency with which he displayed the sins of jealousy, bitterness, self-righteousness, rebellion and disobedience acts as a brightly-lit, crystal-clear full-size mirror into the ugliest, but most pitiful and God-needy part of my own heart.

I dug around online and found a lot of good resources on this subject.  For now I just want to ponder the storm and the slumber that link the OT and the NT together.
