- Is the story of Jonah a factual event or a fictional parable?
- What did three days and three nights mean to the Jews and Jesus’ crucifixion?
- What did do the words “heart of the earth” mean?
- What are the hidden spiritual connections between Jesus and Jonah?
It was just what I needed! It explained everything and took away all the confusion. Thank you, Doug! I also bought one for a friend who was also confused and she was blessed too.
I read it and share what I learn with others.
I used this product for biblical reading and information.
Reading this booklet helped me understand Matthew 12:38-40. It went directly to the point of what Jesus meant when comparing His three days and three nights with Jonah's three days and three nights. It also clarified the 'the heart of the earth' phrase and other misunderstood scriptures comparing Jesus life and death with the events of Jonah's life. This booklet incorporates the easy-to-understand, Scripture-supported, down-to earth style that for over ten years I have come to appreciate and anticipate in Doug Batchelor's materials.
this story clears up a lot of speculation. not to be mocked or laughed at. great material for people who don't have a clue about jonhna
This in depth study comparing the symbolism in Jonah's experience to Jesus' ministry was especially helpful to me in its explanation of what being "in the heart of the earth" meant to Jesus.
I will be sharing it. But will re-read several times myself first.
I have had this book before and it is very good. Seeing how Jonah is a type of Christ was interesting. I was supposed to get the DVD, what happened?
We all have a race we are running in life, with many of us heading the wrong direction. Try as we might, we often find that we are in reality running away from our Heavenly Father's leading. Despite all of Jonah's efforts to put on his track shoes and go the other way, in the end, he became the Bible's most successful prophet, due to his act of submission to God, the loving Father of all!
As a teacher of Adult SS Class I found it helpful with down to earth insights into a somewhat challenging lesson. I also thought it was helpful in dealing with non believers who have a brief knowledge of the story of Jonah to help them with a more realistic understanding of just what took place with the big 'fish'. It is a handy little book to share.
