Unit 19: Jonah




The story of the adventures of the wooden puppet, Pinocchio, concludes with his being cast into the sea supposedly to drown, but instead he is swallowed by a gigantic whale.


Thereafter, he lives in the belly of the great fish until he escapes to the sea again.


One wonders just how much of the account of the concluding phases of Pinocchio's life is modelled on the adventures of Jonah when he felt constrained to go to Nineveh.

一奇观仅仅户头的多少的结束Pinocchio的时期的生命是模型在约拿书的冒险他感到当被强迫的到 Nineveh.

One can only guess, but it is an appealing possibility.


The fact is that although the account of Jonah forms a relatively insignificant part of the Scriptures, it has struck a cord in the hearts of many readers.

事实是那虽然约拿书的户头窗体圣经的相对无关重要的部分,它已打击绳索在许多读者的心 .

It contains an element of the fanciful as well as the awe inspiring that has made it better known than the general message of the book.


The artist has captured the detail of the story in her own inimical style.
