Although the book is written in the third person, the traditional view is that Jonah is the author of the book, and there is no persuasive reason to theorize about an unknown author. Date of Writing: The Book of Jonah was likely written between and B.C.

      Aside from the criticism of Jonah being miraculous, some of the more prominent criticisms launched at the Jonah story included: (1) no historical evidence exists that the entire city of Nineveh ever converted to the God of Israel, (2) the book claims that it took Jonah three days to walk through the city of Nineveh when it covered only about.

Chestnut Street, Edition/Format: Book: Fiction: Juvenile audience: EnglishSeller Rating: % positive. The Book of Jonah is a book of the Nevi'im ("Prophets") in the Hebrew tells of a Hebrew prophet named Jonah son of Amittai who is sent by God to prophesy the destruction of Nineveh but tries to escape the divine The history of Jonah Ross and his mother book.

Set in the reign of Jeroboam II (– BC), it was probably written in the post-exilic period, some time between the late 5th to early 4th century BC.

"The word or the Lord came unto Jonah, the son of Amittai, saying, Arise go to Nineveh, that great city, and cry against it: for their wickedness is come up before me." Jonah i.1, 2. "So Jonah arose and went unto Nineveh, according to the word of the Lord." Jonah iii "And he cried, and said, Yet forty days, and Nineveh shall be overthrown.".

INTRODUCTION. JONAH was the son of Amittai, of Gath-hepher in Zebulun (called Gittah-hepher in Joshua of the ten tribes, not to Judah. His date is to be gathered from 2 Kings entering of Hamath unto the sea of the plain, according to the word of the Lord God of Israel, which He spake by the hand of His servant Jonah, the son of Amittai, the prophet, which was of Gath-hepher.

Jonah's tribal affiliation is disputed; generally assigned to Asher, he is claimed for Zebulun by R. Johanan due to his place of residence. These opinions were harmonized by the assumption that his mother was of Asher while his father was of Zebulun. According to another authority, his mother was the woman of Zarephath who entertained Elijah.

The Book of Jonah (Yonah יונה) is one of the twelve minor prophets included in the Tanakh. According to one tradition, Jonah was the boy brought back to life by Elijah the prophet in 1 Kings Another tradition holds that he was the son of the woman of Shunem brought back to life by Elisha in 2 Kings 4 and that he is called the "son of Amittai" (Truth) due to his mother's recognition of Born: 9th century BCE.

Book of Jonah, the fifth of 12 Old Testament books that bear the names of the Minor Prophets, embraced in a single book, The Twelve, in the Jewish canon. Unlike other Old Testament prophetic books, Jonah is not a collection of the prophet’s oracles but primarily a narrative about the man. Jonah is.

Jonah belongs only seemingly to the prophets who were also writers; for the book bearing his name does not afford the least evidence of having been written by the prophet himself. It merely tells his history, as the Books of the Kings tell of Elijah, Elisha, Micaiah, or Yimlah ben Zimlah.

Accordingly, I see Jonah as living during the days of Jeroboam II. While there is some uncertainty as to the precise years of his reign, most scholars accept his reign as being around B.C. to B.C.

So, if Jonah was the son of the widow at Zarephath, he would have been around 80 years old at the beginning of Jeroboam II’s reign. Book of Jonah. This book professes to give an account of what actually took place in the experience of the critics have sought to interpret the book as a parable or Allegory, and not as a have done so for various reasons.

The book is named after its principal character, whose name means “dove”; see the simile used of Ephraim in Hos to portray the northern kingdom as “easily deceived and senseless.” See also Ps ; and notes.

Though the book does not identify its author, tradition has ascribed it to the prophet himself, Jonah son of Amittai. Jonah Now the word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, &c.] Or, "and the word of the Lord was" F12; not that this is to be considered as connected with something the prophet had on his mind and in his thoughts when he began to write this book; or as a part detached from a prophecy not now extant; for it is no unusual thing with the Hebrews to begin books after this manner.

The Book of Jonah Preface Those of you who are familiar with the story of Jonah and the whale know that Jonah hopped a ship heading in the opposite direction when God commanded him to go preach to the Ninevites. You will also remember how God provided Jonah with a “living submarine” to get him back where he belonged.

Jonah was from the region that would later be known as Galilee. One Jewish tradition holds that Jonah was the son of the widow of Zarephath whom Elizah raised form the dead in 1 Kings3.

Jonah was a contemporary of Jereboam II of Israel ( B.C.) 4. He ministered after the time of Elisha and just before the time of Amos.

Raymond Calkins in his book, The Modern Message of the Minor Prophets, writes: "[Jonah] is not literal history—it is not a short story but an allegory, similar to the Parables of Jesus." Calkins, on page of his book, illustrates this with his list of allegorical meanings: Jonah represents the people of Size: KB.

This places the prophet in the eighth century. However, the Book of Jonah is presented in a “non-historical” setting. The parable used was a gourd that shaded Jonah from the hot sun which later withered away when God sent a worm to kill it.
