The book of Jonah.
That it's impossible to run away from God.
Actually, it's Micah that comes after Jonah....
Jonah was swallowed by the fish, which later spit him out.
A whale or a 'great fish'
The reason for Jonah's disobedience was he knew all about Niniva and there evil ways. He knew How mean they were to each other and people who came to the city. He told God he must be mistaken cause those People (meaning Niniva) didn't deserve a second chance!
Micah, which was written between 735 and 700 B.C.
For one thing, Jonah did not want to be a prophet. The reasons why are not entirely clear, but he certainly did not seem to feel he was up to the responsibility. Further, he knew that although the Ninevites were wicked and had been the enemies of the Israelites, they would eventually repent and the Lord would forgive them; he seemed to resent having to go and preach to them when they were going to… Read More
Originally it was the leviathan, an imaginary, giant beast of the sea. (Really giant, it covered the entire sea bed.) Since the story of Jonah is recorded in the scripture, the scripture has the answer for this. 17Now the LORD had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. A fish is not a whale, in terms of modern scientific classification… Read More
Inside a whale
Jonah was sent to Ninevah in the period between 773-755BC.
When Jonah was cast into the sea, a "great fish" that the Lord had prepared for him swallowed him. Jonah was swallowed by a fish, not a whale, since a whale is a mammal, not a fish. By a WhaleMatthew 12:40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly.The Greek word translated "whale" in the King James Version (above) and many other English translations may also be translated "great fish."… Read More
Technically, the Book of Jonah is anonymous, although Jewish tradition holds that the author really was Jonah. In more recent years it has come to be believed that the book is about Jonah rather than by him.Until the 19th century, Jonah was regarded almost exclusively as historical fact. However, in the 20th century many other theories have been put forth as to how this book should best be interpreted, especially as allegory or parable, or… Read More
Answer 1 Two things. Jonah prophesied to the city of Nineveh, that if they didn't repent within forty days time, God would destroy the city. The people of the city repented and so were spared the judgment. Jonah 3:4 Christ illustrates the example of where Jonah was swallowed by a great whale and spent three days and nights in the belly of the well as being a picture, or a sign of what was to… Read More

Answer: "...an evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly (should be, huge fish); so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." (Matt.12:39-40)
He remained in Ninevah outside of which we found his grave called Yunas mound
Jon 1:1 Now the word of Jehovah came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying,Jon 1:2 Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.Jon 1:3 But Jonah rose up to flee unto Tarshish from the presence of Jehovah; and he went down to Joppa, and found a ship going to Tarshish: so he paid the fare thereof, and went down into it, to go… Read More
Jonah comes before Micah, And the book of Jonah is also titled Jonah.
In his Study Bible, John MacArthur says that it was not uncommon in the Old Testament for someone to write in the 3rd person, and that the autobiographical details clearly prove Jonah wrote the Book of Jonah.
3 days and 3 nights
Jonah cried out loudly with his voice 'Yet forty days and Nineveh will be overthrown.' See Jonah 3:4
It is the story of a minor prophet Jonah , God told him to go to Nineveh , but he ran from Gods command in the opposite way. But he was caught in a storm and was swallowed by a whale, he was in the belly for three days, then he was vomited o the dry land. In the end he went to Nineveh.
The description in the Book of Jonah is generic and nonspecific ... "a large fish".
Jonah was in the belly of the whale for 3 days and 3 nights as is recorded in Jonah 2:1.
Jonah spent 3 days in the whale's stomach
Did Jonah really die in the fish or did he survive three days? God appointed a great fish to swallow Jonah, as he appointed many other things of his creation that are recorded in the book of Jonah. Many people believe that Jonah stayed alive in the fish for three days and that is the miracle but this is not what the Scripture portrays of this event. It says he cried from "Out of the… Read More
Yes and no. It seems that Jonah's prayer starts out with him in the whale, but later we find him praying "out of the belly of hell." He also says, "yet hast thou brought up my life from corruption, O LORD my God." Corruption has to do with a decaying dead body. Additionally he says, "When my soul fainted within me" indicating that he was dead. Just as Jesus died and three days later came… Read More

The book of Jonah is anonymous, and in more recent years it has come to be believed that the book is about Jonah rather than by him, although Jewish tradition holds that the author was Jonah himself.Dr John MacArthur, in the "MacArthur Study Bible", says that:The book makes no direct claim regarding ownership...causing some to search for another author. [However] it was not an uncommon OT practice to write in the third person, [t]he autobiographical… Read More
In what chapter and verse of Jonah can you find Jonah telling the sailors to throw overboard to calm the rough sears?
They make a Jonah clay-mation DVD if you are looking to teach your kids about him or something to that effect. Or you could just read the book to them. It's not that long, and with the right translation it's not too tough to understand. Jonah 1:12
Ultimately, he single-handedly preached repentance to the entire city of Nineva. At first, he was completely reluctant with completing this assignment from God. So much so, that he headed the other direction (out to sea). Through a series of events, which culminated with a very large fish ride, he ended up back on the coast and walked through the town of Nineva preaching. There were many nuggets of truths that he uncovered during this main… Read More
According to the biblical narrative in the book of Jonah, it was three days and three nights.
3 days and nights. Do note however that the use of days and nights in that manner is Hebraically idiomatic. 3 days and nights does not have to mean 72 hours, and can be any part of 3 days and nights.
It was not a whale. The book of Jonah clearly staes that Jonah was swallowed by a big fish, and a whale is not a fish. We are not told what sort of fish it was.It is quite conceivable that, for the time frame that the story was written in, it could have been likely that the "big fish" was in fact a whale. To many people, scientific classification and terms did not apply, and… Read More
Jonah is a prophet called by God to preach the Ninevites for the wickedness. He tells them that Nineveh will be destroyed in 40 days if the people will not repent. But he is considered 'the unwilling prophet' because he refused to accept God's given mission. It is also because the Ninevites were enemies of his people. Instead, he sails to Tarshish in Spain. In punishment, God sent a terrible storm. When the sailors threw… Read More
Not necessarily. Rather than extrapolate things based on what Jonah was thinking using circumstantial evidence, perhaps we should take what he actually said into account. Jonah: 4:1-2: 4 1 But to Jonah this [saving Ninevah] seemed very wrong, and he became angry. 2 He prayed to the Lord, "Isn't this what I said, Lord, when I was still at home? That is what I tried to forestall by fleeing to Tarshish. I knew that you… Read More
No. The Midrash relates that, not wanting to wait for a regularly-scheduled departing ship, he rented out the entire ship with his own money so it would sail immediately.
Not sure. The book of Jonah ends with him waiting for Nineveh to burn for their sins. I don't think we ever really find out exactly when he died.
The story of Jonah and the whale is found in the book of Jonah in the collection books of the 12 minor prophets in the Old Testament.
No doubt he wished the interior decoration had better ambience :)In any case, Jonah was actually being punished for trying to run away from G-d. G-d had asked him to go to the city of Ninveh and tell them to repent. However, Jonah, knowing that they would and that eventually this would not bode well for the Jewish people attempted to flee from the job that G-d had given him. After spending 3 days in… Read More
John MacArthur says in his introductory notes on the book of Jonah that "According to 2Kings 14:25 Jonah came from Gath-hepher near Nazareth. The context places him during the long and prosperous reign of Jeroboam 2 (ca.793-753BC) , making him a prophet to the northern tribes jujst prior to Amos .... ca. 760BC. ....Ninevah's repentance may have been aided by the two plagues (765 and 759BC) and a solar eclipse (763BC), preparing them for Jonah's… Read More
It would be better if you look it up yourself. The Bible is easily available in about 70 English versions, both in print and on the Internet. And like Jonah, this is a good book to read, showing how God deals with pride and lack of brotherly kindness. Obadiah
of course its true!just because the book of jonah cant be scientifically proven or is not historically correct, that doesnt mean that its quotes arent valid to us today. Its true for us right now. just look at the deeper meaning..the story is fiction but there is always truth in the God/human realtionship of the bible.
In the old testament
