Jonah

 

Pronunciation:  DZHO-nuh

Occurrences:  5

First Reference:  Yeshua 11:84

 

Will you now ask for a sign from above? Behold, there will no sign be given you except the sign of Jonah.

 

 

See:  Ninevah

 

Summary:  According to the Hebrew Bible, Jonah was considered a prophet of Israel during the 8th century BCE; he was commissioned by God to call the city of Ninevah to repentance.

 

In the book of Yeshua, Jonah is mentioned by Yeshua while responding to scribes and Pharisees who had asked for a miraculous sign to confirm whether or not Yeshua was come from God (Y:11:78-79). Yeshua rebuked them, stating the only sign given would be a sign of repentance, in similitude of Jonah being a sign of repentance for Ninevah (Y:11:84-89).

 

 

Notes/References:

 

Compare: Yeshua 11:79-86 with New Testament: Luke 11:29-32; Matthew 12:38-42

 

 

83. You hypocrites, filled with deceit; you discern readily both earth and sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the time.

84. Will you now ask for a sign from above? Behold, there will no sign be given you except the sign of Jonah.

85. For as Jonah was a sign of repentance unto the Ninevites, even so shall the Son of Man be unto this generation.

86. I tell you truly, that the Queen of the South will rise up in judgment against you;

87. For even she did come from the ends of the earth that she might hear the wisdom of Solomon, and now is there come unto you one which is greater than Solomon, and you will not hear.

88. And in judgment shall all Ninevah come forth to judge you, for they repented long ago at the preaching of Jonah, and now is there come among you one which is greater than Jonah, and you will not repent.

89. Think not that I have come to destroy the law or the prophets; for I came not to destroy but to fulfill.

Yeshua 11:83-89

 

Come now and before the people answer, unto whom was the prophet Jonah sent: Israel or Ninevah?

And when he had completed all which God had sent him to do, unto whom did God show forth great mercy: Israel or Ninevah?

Yeshua 20:26-27
