Jonah and the Whale

We saw this sculpture of a whale at Old Joppa/Jaffa with a plaque quoting the Old Testament versus about Jonah’s flight from God.

When I return home I plan to show this to my grandchildren and re-tell the story of Jonah, sharing with them that I actually stood by that ancient harbor where this occurred.  So surreal seeing actual places written in the Bible!
