Chapter 1

Book Overview - Jonah

by Joseph Parker



[Note.—"All the information which we possess concerning the prophet Jonah , besides what we learn from the present book, is gathered from the notice of him found in 2 Kings 14:25 : "He (Jeroboam) restored the coast of Israel from the entering of Hamath unto the sea of the plain, according to the word of the Lord God of Israel, which he spake by the hand of his servant Jonah , the son of Amittai, the prophet, which was of Gath-hepher." Gath-hepher, in Joshua 19:13, "Gittah-hepher," lay in the district assigned to Zebulun. This notice therefore shows that Jonah was a prophet of the Northern kingdom and "arose out of Galilee" (see John 7:52)."—The Speaker"s Commentary]
