The Book of Jonah stands noticeably apart from other prophet accounts for its predominantly narrative structure. Hebrew prophet Jonah, son of Amittai, is instructed by God to travel to the town of Nineveh and prophesy against the city’s wickedness and oncoming destruction. Feeling uneasy with such a mission, Jonah flees on ship from Jaffa to Tarshish, but in route, an unexpected storm bubbles and wreaks havoc on the lonely, sea-tossed vessel. The ship’s crew begin casting lots and soon discover Jonah is to blame for their troubles. He soon convinces them to toss him overboard into the troubling sea below, and there, he is swallowed whole by a giant fish, often referenced as a whale in later translations. Jonah spends three days and three nights inside the belly of a whale knelt in prayer, and he recommits himself to God.
