Heroes of the Faith: Jonah and the Whale

‘Jonah and the Whale’🐟.acrylic on canvas 40×60 cm

Every month I am going to paint a children’s piece for my ‘Heroes of the Faith’ collection. A series of Bible characters for kids.

Here we have Jonah the prophet. God told Jonah to go preach at Nineveh because the people there were wicked. Jonah had other plans however.

He soon learned though that when God says “Go” you go.

Jonah was washed away in a terrible storm, but by the grace of God, was swallowed by a large whale and spent 3 nights in the whale’s belly until God answered his prayers. After 3 days he was spat out on the shores of Nineveh.
