This is for all who attend the Tuesday Night session of the Adult VBS class. The following link is to a site that talks about the historicity of Jonah.
Also look at Christian Answers for their entry about Jonah.
I have not doubt that Jonah’s story is historical. I also have no doubt that he survived being swallowed by a big fish and that it is a miracle. Is a man surviving a stay in the belly of a great fish for at least part of three days a miracle? Could be or could be natural phenomenon. But it is definitely a miracle that all of the events came together at the same time and it shows that God is in control and we would do well for ourselves to simply obey!
