Jonah (which means dove) was a prophet to Israel in the 8th Century, B.C. The Lord spoke to him, saying "œGo at once to Nineveh"¦cry out against it, for their wickedness has come up before me."� Jonah did not want to goand he ran away. He boarded a ship that nearly broke apart in a violent storm. He told the sailors to throw him into the sea because his disobedience was the cause of the storm. He was swallowed by a great fish and spent three days and nights in its belly, thanking the Lord for having saved him from drowning. Then the fish spat him onto the shore, only a day's walk from Nineveh where he did the Lord's will.
