Description

The book of Jonah (ספר יונה) is riddled with challenges and unprecedented - and subsequently unmatched - phenomena in the Biblical record. Beyond the unique nature of Yonah's agency, his refusal to accept it and his attempt to "flee" God's presence, the amazing sensitivity of the sailors and the incredible reaction of the Ninevites, there is a larger question which looms here. What is Yonah doing among the books of the Nevi'im? There are a total of five words of prophetic pronouncement in the entire book: עוד ארבעים יום ונינוה נהפכת. We explore an expanded and broader understanding of the role of the prophets and their means of communication to explain and justify the inclusion of Yonah among the books of the Nevi'im
