Jonah, one of the most well-known books of the Bible.
We all may remember at one stage of our lives where we all sat around a small table, while sticking gum to the bottom of our chairs, watching our teacher take out different shapes from her binder, and as she spoke, placing them on the flannel graph. As she placed the first shape, she explained that this man's name was Jonah. She then put a shape in the clouds to represent God and said, 'God asked Jonah to go to Nineveh, but Jonah didn't listen'. She then proceeded to place a large shape on the board, which was in the shape of a whale and then said, 'God sent a whale to swallow Jonah for three days...' Now that we are older, I would hazard a guess that as we walk through this true-life story together now, we will discover more about the grace of our LORD and how patient He is with us.
