A one-act adaptation of the popular Bible story where God speaks to Jonah, Jonah speaks back to him but decides not to listen and proceeds to try to hide from God. In a similitude of the Savior, he spends three days in the belly of the whale (or great fish) , likened unto the three days in the tomb. He follows the will of the Lord and is not happy about it until he is allowed to realize that all people, no matter their state of righteousness, have the right to salvation. SONGS INCLUDE: Arise, Jonah!, Middle Of The World, From The Deep, Nineveh City, New Man, Of You!
