The Book Of Jonah "Fiction Or Non-fiction"?



Hung out with some friends two months back and a Biblical discussion ensued, the hot topic was ''Jonah."

There were allegations labelled against Jonah, the concluding part of their allegation categorically stated that the Book of Jonah was a Fiction. This got me! *Trust your girl to dig up some facts before she concludes with the rest.

From my findings, I realized that their analysis was baseless and with zero fact to buttress their stance. Now, it gets interesting.

I believe 95% of  blog visitors believe in Jesus and in the Holy Bible. Here comes the The Big Question, Did Jesus Tell a lie? *Well, I don't think so.

Well, Jesus acknowledged Jonah... Here's a rundown of my backup:

Mathew 12:40, "Like Jonah, three days and nights in the fish's belly, the Son of  Man will be gone three days and nights in a deep grace." (He even likened himself with Jonah)

Mathew 12:41, "A far greater preacher than Jonah is here, and you squabble about proofs."

Mathew 16:17, "God bless you, Simon, Son of Jonah! (Jonah was father of Simon? hmm).

As evidenced, Jesus addressed the people of Israel acknowledging Jonah on three accounts.

Never be too quick to conclude. Some critic writers are psychos on a mission to mislead, don't be a victim. God has blessed us with wisdom to discern between good and evil, be wise. Sometimes, the answers are not too far from us, look again.

Those who claim it was a Fiction lied! *yimu. You still believe it is a Fictional book? The floor is open to any form of shade or cross-countering.

*Today, before you jump into conclusion or agree with the crowd, ask questions, study the case study and indulge in empirical scrutiny.

Have a great day Fam!

  1. The argument wasn't that there wasn't Jonah rather that he never got into a fish belly... they are two different things

  2. @Jude, Are you trying to say that Jesus lied by categorically using Jonah's instance of staying in the belly of a fish for three day? Kindly highlight an evidence to buttress your enlightening point.

  3. Ouuch, I wasn't expecting that from you, Jude. That was one of the central theme of Jonah but among the least important compared to the main points of lessons gained.
