This is our wonderful Jonah the Prophet Plaque. Jonah, (Hebrew: יוֹנָה) is the name given in the Book of Jonah in the Hebrew Scriptures to a prophet from the northern kingdom of Israel c. 8th century BC. Jonah is famous for having been swallowed by a whale or fish (depending on the translation – go to History/Story tab). This bronze plaque is indeed a wonderful gift for a birthday, feast day, first communion or confirmation.

Jonah and the “Whale”
On this solid bronze plaque Jonah is depicted as being swallowed by a “great fish” or “whale” after having done his utmost to avoid God’s mission for him. While the Book of Jonah is a classic of humorous prophetic writing, it also has a very simple and serious underlying message: Get right with God and you will save yourself a whole lot of trouble in life! Jesus referred to Jonah’s three-day sojourn in the belly of the “whale” as a prefiguring of his own three days in the tomb before his resurrection from the dead (Matthew 12:39-41).
