Jonah 1 1 The word of the Lord came to Jonah the
son of Amittai saying, 2 Arise, go to Nineveh
the great city and cry against it, for their
wickedness has come up before Me. 3 But Jonah
rose up to flee to Tarshish from the presence of
the Lord. So he went down to Joppa, found a ship
which was going to Tarshish, paid the fare and
went down into it to go with them to Tarshish
from the presence of the Lord. 4 The Lord
hurled a great wind on the sea and there was a
great storm on the sea so that the ship was about
to break up. 5 Then the sailors became afraid
and every man cried to his god, and they threw
the cargo which was in the ship into the sea to
lighten it for them. But Jonah had gone below
into the hold of the ship, lain down and fallen
sound asleep.

Jonah 1 6 So the captain approached him and
said, How is it that you are sleeping? Get up,
call on your god. Perhaps your god will be
concerned about us so that we will not perish.
7 Each man said to his mate, Come, let us cast
lots so we may learn on whose account this
calamity has struck us. So they cast lots and
the lot fell on Jonah. 8 Then they said to him,
Tell us, now! On whose account has this calamity
struck us? What is your occupation? And where do
you come from? What is your country? From what
people are you? 9 He said to them, I am a
Hebrew, and I fear the Lord God of heaven who
made the sea and the dry land.

TESTIMONY TIMES ISSUE 1 VOLUME 1
BIG NEWS! GOD called Jonah Jonah ran away!
Although commanded by GOD to go to Nineveh to cry
against it, the prophet Jonah headed instead for
the seaport in Joppa. After buying a ticket for
Tarshish, he climbed aboard the ship and went
down into its hold. Sources say that Jonah was
trying to flee from the presence of the Lord. Not
long into the voyage, a great calamity happened.
A violent storm struck.
Sailors threw cargo overboard to lighten the load
and save the ship and their lives. When the storm
didnt stop, they decided to cast lots to see who
has caused the storm. When the lot fell on
Jonah, the sailors asked him many questions. As
the waves crashed and wind howled, Jonah
responded, I am a Hebrew, and I fear GOD who
made the sea and dry land.

green clock like this

happen? WHEN did the main characters do

Review of Memory Verse

heaven and in earth, in the seas and in all
deeps.

2 Kings 1425 He restored the border of Israel
from the entrance of Hamath as far as the Sea of
the Arabah, according to the word of the Lord,
the God of Israel, which He spoke through His
servant Jonah the son of Amittai, the prophet,
who was of Gath-hepher.
19 occurrences AV translates as Jonah 19
times. 1 son of Amittai and a native of
Gath-hepher 5th of the minor prophets who

Matt 1239-4139 But He answered and said to
them, An evil and adulterous generation craves
for a sign and yet no sign will be given to it
but the sign of Jonah the prophet 40 for just
as Jonah was three days and three nights in the
belly of the sea monster, so will the Son of Man
be three days and three nights in the heart of
the earth. 41 The men of Nineveh will stand up
with this generation at the judgment, and will
condemn it because they repented at the preaching
of Jonah and behold, something greater than
Jonah is here.

Jonah 1 10 Then the men became extremely
frightened and they said to him, How could you
do this? For the men knew that he was fleeing
from the presence of the Lord, because he had
told them. 11 So they said to him, What should
we do to you that the sea may become calm for
us?for the sea was becoming increasingly
stormy. 12 He said to them, Pick me up and
throw me into the sea. Then the sea will become
calm for you, for I know that on account of me
this great storm has come upon you. 13
However, the men rowed desperately to return to
land but they could not, for the sea was becoming
even stormier against them.

Jonah 1 14 Then they called on the Lord and
said, We earnestly pray, O Lord, do not let us
perish on account of this mans life and do not
put innocent blood on us for You, O Lord, have
done as You have pleased. 15 So they picked up
Jonah, threw him into the sea, and the sea
stopped its raging. 16 Then the men feared the
Lord greatly, and they offered a sacrifice to the
Lord and made vows. 17 And the Lord appointed a
great fish to swallow Jonah, and Jonah was in the
stomach of the fish three days and three nights.
