Don't be like Jonah!:

 We who are Christians are all called by God to share our faith (witness) with those who are not Christians.  Some Bible verses that you will find helpful for doing this, and that you may want to commit to memory are found on other pages on our  web site (see: Memory Verses; 2nd Set: Salvation!, Plan of Salvation, and Statement of Faith). _________________

 

...swallowed by a whale...

The gentle humour of this wonderful tale of the bad-tempered prophet is given full rein here.  Jonah's flat refusal to preach the word of the Lord to the people of the wicked city of Ninevah leads to his upsetting an entire boatful of sailors, and being unceremoniously heaved overboard to be swallowed by a whale. 

...God's patience, humour, and mercy...  

Even after accomplishing his task, Jonah remains as grumpy as ever, but God's patience and humour lead him to understand the meaning of mercy - eventually!  Cel animation is the perfect medium for this fantastical and comic gem. ________________________
