The Hebrew prophet, who was cast overboard as one who endangered the ship; hence, any person whose presence is unpropitious.
One of the twelve minor prophets, this book was written in the post-exilic era, probably in the fifth century BCE. It is a didactic story where a disobedient and vindictive prophet is set against a merciful and playful God. The book seems to take its name from a prophet named Jonah, son of Amittai, who lived at the time of Jeroboam II (786-746 BCE).
The prophet in the O.T. sent by God to preach to the Assyrians in Ninevah. Known for his trip in the belly of the sea monster.
