Bible Summary

Jonah and the whale
The bible stories represent many aspects of which archetypes are represented. Such as Jonah and the whale introduces a very common archetype of the unwilling hero. Obviously the unwilling hero would be directed towards Jonah in which he cannot overcome the fear of condemning a city.
Jonah is represented with a call from God in which God calls upon Jonah to go condemn the evil of “Ninevah, the great city,” Jonah refuses and angers God. These aspects of the unwilling hero has already shown in which the main character is introduced to a task, such as condemning an evil city, but rather than taking the task that God has put upon him Jonah decides to board a ship and leave town to hide from God.
Jonah’s archetype of the unwilling hero can be characterized by a couple simple sentences; first Jonah has an opportunity to become a hero of the town of Ninevah, then as the unwilling hero most commonly shows Jonah becomes full of doubt and hesitation in which Jonah believes that he is just a commoner and he is not the man for the job. After boarding the ship God has been angered and takes his wrath upon the ship in which Jonah is then taken overboard into the ocean.
Jonah was pushed into adventure by the outside forces, such as when God takes pity upon Jonah and Jonah which is then eaten by a whale for 3 days. The whale gives Jonah sufficient time to pen a hymn of thanksgiving to Yahweh, on the third day “the lord spake unto the fish, and vomited out Jonah upon dry land” (2:10)
Upon putting Jonah onto the dry land Jonah finally steps up and becomes the hero of which God wanted him to be. Instead of being joyful and content about the saving of the condemning of Ninevah his basic human nature has made him go towards anger in which he does not think that Ninevah should have been saved
