Jonah And The Whale, Take 2?
Many readers no doubt read the account or saw a picture of a man off the coast of South Africa who found himself in the mouth of a Bride’s whale for two seconds early in March 2019. The man is reported to have taken a deep breath and was released without harm, for whales can dive down deep for many minutes. The mammal seems to have been surprised by this as was the man who was filmed saying it was "surely nothing I would want to do again." This aquatic occurrence reminds many students of the Bible, as well as those who read the record of Jonah and the whale to children, that Jonah was in the whale for 3 days. (Jonah 1:17; Matt.12:40.)
