The Historicity of the Book of Jonah

Most contemporary Bible scholars view the book of Jonah as a myth or legend, not as genuine history. This includes not only critical scholars, but also an increasing number of evangelical scholars. Yet nearly all Christian and Jewish scholars prior to modern times did regard the book of Jonah as a true history, and Jesus referred several times to the events in the book of Jonah as if they really happened. This book consists of a defense of the traditional view of the book of Jonah as a true history. Key subjects addressed include Jesus’ statements in the Gospels, the role of the supernatural in history, the historical situation of the book of Jonah, and the relationship between the historicity of the Bible and the inerrancy of the Bible. The book concludes by giving an overview of the book of Jonah from the standpoint that it is historically true and accurate.
