Article Summary:
By God’s sovereign appointment, a rebellious prophet, a raging storm, and a ravenous fish came together to illustrate the death and resurrection of Christ and to bring revival to a sin-soaked city. Jonah’s preaching spurred Nineveh to believe in “the Lord God of heaven who made the sea and the dry land.” (Jonah 1:9)

Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered Him, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.” But He answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation craves for a sign; and yet no sign shall be given to it but the sign of Jonah the prophet; for just as JONAH WAS THREE DAYS AND THREE NIGHTS IN THE BELLY OF THE SEA MONSTER, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. “The men of Nineveh shall stand up with this generation at the judgment, and shall condemn it because they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
(Matthew 12:38-41)
