Tag Archives: belly of the fish


A Sunday school teacher reads a Bible passage to her class. ‘And the Lord appointed a great fish to swallow up Jonah; and Jonah was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights. Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the belly of the fish, saying, “I called to the Lord of my distress and He answered me.” … and the Lord spoke to the fish, and it vomited out Jonah upon the dry land.’ When she’s finished reading, the teacher says, ‘Now, children. What does this story teach us?’ Little Johnny raises his hand and says, ‘You can’t keep a good man down?’
