SUNDAY SCHOOL NEWS Book of Jonah: Story Bible p. 199. Just as Jonah was swallowed up in the belly of the fish for three days, so Jesus, in His crucifixion, was baptized into the sea of death, drowned in our sin, devoured by the grave, and spewed forth alive again on the third day so that He might save us all. Questions for discussion include, “Why did Jonah try to run away from God? What does God do when sinful people repent?”
