p.s. In pertaining to Jonah, it is of noteworthy importance that…

In Matthew 12:40, Jesus compares Himself to Jonah in what Jesus calls “the sign of Jonah.” Jonah is the only prophet from the Old Testament who Jesus compares Himself to.

Jonah -> in the belly of the great fish for three days and three nights -> was spit out and preached God’s Word to the Ninevites -> the Ninevites repented  -> God spared destruction on their city

Jesus -> in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights (His death and burial) -> rose again and is God’s WORD of salvation to all people -> God spares eternal death to those who repent and believe

“Salvation belongs to the Lord.” ~ Jonah 2:9
