I am not a “Bible says it; so I believe it” kinda of guy. I want context. I want historical fact. I want the skinny.
That being said, this book does not say who wrote it. It is unlikely that Jonah was the author. The story is not very favourable towards Jonah. No writer in the Bible tells such a bad story about himself.
Regardless, I want to learn from the story.
May the word of the Lord come to you this day as it did so long ago for Jonah.
