Most people are familiar with the story of Jonah and the Whale.
The Book of Jonah is the fifth of the Minor Prophetic Books and the thirty-second book in the Bible. It was written by the prophet Jonah, who is also mentioned in II Kings as serving during the time of King Jereboam II of Israel c.786-746 BC.
Jonah is commanded by God to preach to a Gentile (non-Jewish) nation and to show that God's grace is not reserved for the Jews, but is given to every nation on earth.
