"Wh do ye also transgress the commandment of God by your tradition9'' Y ~ Matthew 15:3 JONAH AND THE GREAT FISH ,= Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Truth or Tradition? ~~ "Now the Lord had prepared a great fish to swallow up Jonah. And Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights." Jonah 1:17. Nineveh was the capital of the Assyrian Empire, which had long been a bi tier en emy of God's people. But God, who commands all men everywhere to repent, sent word to Jonah to "Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me." Jonah 1:2. But Jonah caught a ship going in the opposite direction. He did not relish the idea of preaching repen- tance to such a wicked nation that had caused Israel so.much suffer- ing through the years. But a storm came up and Jonah was thrown overboard and swallowed by a "great fish" theLord had prepared. There are those who argue that the great fish that swalloed Jonah was probably a shark, because a whale's throat is not large enough to accommodate a man. But when you read the Biblical account in the book of Jonah carefully, you will note that God ~ a great fish. Part of that preparation could well have been enlarging the throat. So, the "great fish" could very well have been a whale. A careful reading of the story of Jonah will also reveal that it was always called a "great fish," not once is it ever called a "whale".... not in the Old Testament. Didn't Jesus call it a whale? In reference to His burial and resurrection, Jesus said: "For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly, so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth." Matthew 12:40. The Greek word that Jesus used was KETOS, which means: a great sea monster, a huge fish. The word KETOS is found in the New Tes- tament only once, here inthis pas- sage, and here it is translated whale. Was it a whale? Could have been. but we can we know for sure? The Bible doesn't really say. What do you think? Jonah was swallowed by a whale. Truth or Tradition? Steer Creek Church of Christ. 3466 Rosedale Road, Stumptown. WV 25267. Minis- ter: Gene H.
