Jewish Tradition According to the Septuagint text of the Book of Tobias (xiv, 4), the words of Jonah in regard to the destruction of Ninive are accepted as facts; the same reading is found in the Aramaic text and one Hebrew manuscript.The apocryphal III Mach., vi, 8, lists the saving of Jonah in the belly of the fish along with the other wonders of Old Testament history. Jud., IX, 2) clearly deems the story of Jonah to be historical. The Authority of Our Lord This reason is deemed by Catholics to remove all doubt as to the fact of the story of Jonah. This last is but a paraphrastic rendering of the name Gath-Hepher, a town in the territory of Zabulon (Josephus, "Antiq.", XIX, xiii), which was probably the birthplace of the Prophet, and where his grave was still pointed out in the time of St. The chief interest in the Prophet Jonah centres around two remarkable incidents narrated in the book which bears his name. Apart from the book traditionally ascribed to him, Jonah is mentioned only once in the Old Testament, 2 Kings , where it is stated that the restoration by Jeroboam II (see Jeroboam ) of the borders of Israel against the incursions of foreign invaders was a fulfillment of the "word of the Lord the God of Israel, which he spoke by his servant Jonah the son of Amathi, the prophet, who was of Geth, which is in Opher". , and in 16:4 , and likewise in the parallel passages of Luke (xi, 29, 30, 32), but these references add nothing to the information contained in the Old Testament data. L., XLIII, 407), Jonah was the son of the widow of Sarephta whose resuscitation by the Prophet Elias is narrated in 1 Kings 17 , but this legend seems to have no other foundation than the phonetic resemblance between the proper name Amathi, father of the Prophet, and the Hebrew Emeth , "truth", applied to the word of God through Elias by the widow of Sarephta ( 1 Kings ).
