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.

木のパペット、Pinocchio の冒険の物語は浸るために海に推定上投げられる彼のと、完了するが代りに彼は巨大なクジラによって飲み込まれる。

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.

1 つは彼がNineveh に行くように強いられて感じたときに模倣されるかPinocchio の生命の完了段階の記述のどの位Jonah の冒険でちょうど疑問に思う。

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

1 つは推測ただできるがそれは魅力的な可能性である。

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.

事実はJonah の記述がScriptures の比較的些細な一部分になるが、多くの読者の中心のコードを打ったことである。

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.
