Bible Trivia - Jonah (A Little Devotional from Lucy too!)

That's all really cool about Jonah and the Big Fish, Pete.
But you forgot to mention a few things.

Such as?

* That the name of the capital city that Jonah saved was Nineveh - the Northern Kingdom's most fierce enemy.
* This all happened during the reign of King Jeroboam II in the late 700s BC.
* That it shows how merciful God is even to the worse people (Because the Ninevites did things that were really bad in God's sight).
* But most important, Jesus told the story so that His early followers would understand how He would rise again after being THREE DAYS in the tomb. If God allowed Jonah, who didn't want to do God's will, to live after being in a fishes stinky, smelly stomach for three days, wouldn't He RAISE UP His Son?

Oh, yeah...I remember our Sunday school teacher saying something like that. But I didn't know this was going to be one of your devotionals, Lucy!

Do you wanna go play catch now?

It's not really a devotional, Pete! Well maybe kinda. But one without a prayer or a Bible verse or...
At Pete's bored look Lucy stopped speaking. This was his story and she shouldn't have interrupted him.

Okay, Pete! Let's play catch! 
Race ya! Come on, Caesar!
