The most famous of the twelve "minor prophets", Jonah was commanded by God to preach to the pagan Ninevites a message of repentance, so that the city could be saved, but he initially refused. Jonah tried to flee God by sailing across the Mediterranean Sea, but he learns an important lesson: God is everywhere. Jonah is swallowed by a very large fish (possibly a whale) and remains in its stomach for three days. He prays to God for mercy and God commands the fish to vomit him up on shore. After that, Jonah obey's God's command and preaches to the city of Nineveh. The Ninevites repent and the city is spared.
