      This book is about God. We can see it clearly this way: The fish is mentioned 4 times. The city is mentioned 9 times. Jonah is mentioned 18 times. God is mentioned 38 times. Jonah is not the hero of the story. God is! This book is about God and how great his heart is toward prodigal sons and daughters who run away from him.   Watch other amazing Bible Stories like Birth of Jesus, Cain ad Abel, Noahs Ark, Joseph, Moses and many more - This is a summary on the.

    "Then Jonah prayed unto Jehovah his God out of the fish's belly." The first threat to Jonah's life was, of course, that of drowning; and, for whatever period of time he might have been conscious inside the sea-monster, he was profoundly grateful for his being saved from drowning; and that salvation led him to believe that God would preserve him.   Instead of drowning, Jonah was swallowed by a great fish, which God provided. In the belly of the whale, Jonah repented and cried out to God in prayer. He praised God, ending with the eerily prophetic statement, "Salvation comes from the Lord." (Jonah , NIV).

    In dealing with any book of the Bible, we need to distinguish between what Dr. G. Campbell Morgan calls the essentials and the incidentals. The incidentals in the Book of Jonah are the fish, the gourd, the east wind, the boat, and even the city of Nineveh. The essentials here are Jehovah and Jonah—God and man—that is what the book is all about. CHAPTER 2. Jonah’s Prayer. 1 But the LORD sent a great fish to swallow Jonah, and he remained in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. a 2 Jonah prayed to the LORD, his God, from the belly of the fish: 3 * Out of my distress I called to the LORD,. and he answered me; From the womb of Sheol * I cried for help,. and you heard my voice. b 4 You cast me into the deep, into the heart.
