12-Week Series Overview
The historical character of the man Jonah is vouched for by Jesus Christ (Mt.12:39-41). The account of Jonah in the belly of the great fish for three days was a sign or type of our Lord's burial and resurrection. Both are miraculous and both are equally credible. Jonah was a bigoted Jew and was unwilling to testify to a Gentile city, and he was angry at God for sending him to Nineveh. Jonah was a seasoned prophet and is mentioned in II Kings 14:25, St. Mt. 12:39-41, St. Luke 11:29-32. The book of Jonah shows Jonah's mission, his disobedience, his punishment, his prayer and his repentance. It also shows how Jonah went from one PIT to another PIT.
