Bible book: Jonah

Creative activities and ideas based on the Bible book Jonah

The book of Jonah is one of the most well-known and beloved of the twelve minor prophets in the Old Testament. It tells the story of a reluctant prophet named Jonah, who is called by God to travel to the city of Nineveh and preach to its inhabitants. Despite his initial resistance, Jonah eventually carries out his mission, leading to a series of miraculous events, including a great storm, a giant fish, and the repentance of an entire city.

At the heart of the book of Jonah is the powerful message of God's mercy and compassion.
