Low Signal

Well, there you have it. Even if Jonah had had a phone with him in the belly of the big fish/sea monster/whale, he still wouldn’t have been able to get a strong enough signal to make to call for help. 😅

(and this may very well be one of my favorite cartoons that I have ever posted on this blog. I hope you like it, too)

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. Hahaha too funny and I use to think the Bible didn’t call it a whale either, and even made that comment on another blog. Miraculously a few days later I read this verse and went back and corrected my comment 🙂

    For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale’s belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. — Matthew 12:40 🙂 KJV

  2. Interesting. The AMP and NASB call it a “sea monster,” while the ESV and. NKJV call it a “great fish”. So far, only the KJV and ASV use “whale”. I am going to do some research to see what other insights I can glean from the original texts (using a Bible concordance). Thanks, Margaret!

    1. I did some additional research on Blue Letter Bible (feel free to Google it), and the original Greek word for the creature is ketos, which can be translated as sea monster or great fish. It appears that the translators have logically inferred “whale” from the text, so it looks like we may both be right! I have updated this post accordingly.

    2. Oh my dear Sister, it was not my intention to send you down that rabbit hole. I would never want to plant a seed of doubt about God’s Word. Or send you off on a trivia ((in my opinion) search for text of if it was a whale or a great fish, or sea monster for to me these are trivial. These are the things that really don’t matter in the big scheme of the Word. You get the importance of the scripture whether it was a great fish a whale a dragon. You know Jonas was in something God put him in 🙂 for God’s good will, and glory 🙂 THOSE are the important things 🙂 I feel I created a stumbling block with my comment and for that I am truly, truly sorry. I love you and would never want to make you feel anything but happiness. You deserve nothing less than that.

      The cartoon is hilarious. I so look forward to these every Friday 🙂

      1. Not at all, Margaret! I have been in an inductive Bible study for the past few years, and we regularly looked up the Greek or Hebrew meaning of words from the Bible in order to understand the author’s original intent. So no need to apologize at all! My research took about ten minutes, and I learned something as well, so it is a win-win for me! 🧡
