Jonah 1:17: Now 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.
Eye-witness footage of Jonah floundering about at the tail-end of being swallowed by the great fish; a problem of incredible scale.
The species of whale or fish that swallowed Jonah cannot be identified with certainty. Suggestions have included the sperm whale or a large shark. Regardless, the great fish was God’s instrument to rescue Jonah from the depths of the sea. What a homie!
The story of Jonah is often connected to Christ’s reserrection, or is said to be the prefiguration of Christ’s resserection, because Jonah stayed three days in the whale’s belly. Some people claim Jonah died in the whale’s belly and God brought him back to life after three days. See for example Matthew 12:40 — JU HURRD??
