The Book of Jonah: Dispensationally Considered It is sad to say but this author has been hard pressed to find many good commentaries on the book of Jonah. Many are filled with historical information on Nineveh and its moral condition at the time that Jonah came preaching judgment and little else. Some do a great job of proving the authorship of the book, but it is usually at the expense of the book's message. While still other books are condensed with marvelous stories like the one about a whaler off the coast of the Falklands who was lost at sea while trying to bring in a Sperm Whale. He was later found alive in the whale's belly the following day and temporarily out of his mind. Then there is the discovery of the complete skeletal remains of a fully clothed man who was swept away by a Typhoon inside the belly of a 15-foot Tiger Shark. Others have attempted to prove that a man could survive in the stomach of a whale because whales being mammals, and not fish, breathe air and could provide the needed oxygen for Jonah. That, I believe, wasn't necessary because dead men don't need oxygen. What? Wait and see for yourself. Ask yourself this, Was Jonah in the lungs of the great fish, or the belly? The belly! There's not a lot of air in a whale's belly. Even if you don't come to the same conclusion as me on whether Jonah died and was resurrected in the whale three days later you can still glean a lot from this study. Enjoy. This book will take a different approach to the study of Jonah, an approach that many authors would do good to follow when writing about the Bible and that approach is, the approach from faith. If we don't approach the book of Jonah from the position of faith, and we try approaching it from the position of intellect, then we will miss all the ridges, valleys and streams that the mountain of intellect will block from our view. But if we approach each book of the Bible from the position of faith, we will see all that God wants us to see. We will have the proof that the doubter seeks but cannot obtain, because he comes at it from the wrong perspective.Proverbs 14:2 There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
