Jonah: It is Whale with My Soul


God tells Jonah to go to the city of Nineveh and put them on notice that they better repent or else. After hearing the creator of the universe speak to him, Jonah promptly disobeys and runs away from God. Jonah gets on a boat in an attempt to get away from God. God sends a storm to rock the boat and Jonah finally owns up to being the reason for the storm and ends up overboard and inside a whale. Jonah eventually gets spit out by the whale. He does a tuck and roll and lands on his feet in Nineveh, telling them to repent and is received with open arms. At this point, you’d think that Jonah would look into the camera and say something like “Hmmm… do I smell fish?” But sometimes Bible stories don’t end like TV sitcoms. Jonah successfully converts the entire city of Nineveh (according to scholars, we’re talking around 120,000 people). Then God says “OK, they repented. I’ll forgive them.” That is when Jonah gets ticked at God. Why? He’s mad because God forgave the people of Nineveh.
