Jonah Preaches

Jonah finally goes to Nineveh and preaches against it. The people listen and repent and Yahvah relents from the calamity he had planned.

Jonah 3

1The word of the Master came to Jonah FE a 2nd time saying, 2Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call to it the calling which I tell you. Jonah 3:1-23Jonah arose and went to Nineveh according to the word of the Master. Nineveh was a great city to god, of 3 days journey. 4Jonah began to go into the city 1 day's journey and called and said, Yet 40 days and Nineveh will be overthrown. I Isaiah 17:1 A 2 Corinthians 6:7 5The men of Nineveh believed in god and called a fast and put on sackcloth from the greatest of them even to the least. I Isaiah 17:4 H Matthew 12:41 H Luke 11:32 A Hebrews 13:2 Jonah 3:3-56The word reached the king of Nineveh and he arose from his throne and took off his crown from his head and covered himself with sackcloth and sat in ashes. 7He caused it to be proclaimed throughout Nineveh: Jonah 3:6-7By the decree of the king and his nobles, Jonah 3:7Let neither children of men nor animals, herd nor flock, taste anything. Do not let them feed, nor drink water, 8but let children of men and animals be covered with sackcloth and call to god with groaning. Yes let every man turn from his evil way and from the violence that is in his hands. 9Who knows if god will turn and repent FE and turn from us his fierce anger that we may not perish? I Isaiah 17:7-8 Jonah 3:7-9FE 10God saw their works, that they turned from their evil ways, and turned his fierce anger away from them and did not destroy them. A Proverbs 12:7 Jonah 3:10 (Jonah 3:1-10 BRB)


3+40 = 43 = Luke


A simple word search for "Jonah" in the book of Luke lands on this passage where Jesus talks about how the people of Nineveh repented at the preaching of Jonah.

29When the crowds were gathering he began to say, This evil generation wants a sign and no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah the prophet. 30For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites so the son of man will also be to this generation. Luke 11:29-30FA 31The queen of the south will rise up in judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them for she came from the far ends of the land to hear the wisdom of Solomon and one greater than Solomon is here. H 1 Kings 10:1 Luke 11:3132The men of Nineveh will rise up in judgment against this generation and condemn it for they repented at the preaching of Jonah and one greater than Jonah is here. H Jonah 3:5 Luke 11:32 (Luke 11:29-32 BRB)

Obviously this is a match to the source story where Jonah preaches and the people of Nineveh stopped their evil ways.
