Jonah Overview




JONAH was a Galilean, a native of Gath-hepher, which is thought to be the same with Jotapata, celebrated for the siege which Josephus the historian maintained against the Roman army. Gath-hepher was situated in the land of Zebulon, where was the canton of Ophir or Hepher. Jonah lived in the days of Jeroboam and Joash, kings of Israel; but we know little certain concerning him, excepting what is delivered in this prophesy, which is chiefly historical; containing nothing poetical, or similar to the usual prophetic style, except the prayer in the second chapter.
