Sunday School Lessons on “Jonah Inside The Fish”
Today’s bible reading is the story Jonah.
Jonah 1: 1-17
Jonah 2: 10
Why did God put Jonah inside the fish? Why did he then release him after 3 days?
Give a sheet of paper to each student and ask them to fold it into three sections – you might have to demonstrate how to do this.
Provide art supplies and tell the students that they are to tell the story of Jonah in 3 parts – Jonah angering God, Jonah’s punishment, and Jonah’s release from the fish. How they illustrate their 3 parts is up to each student, but they should be able to describe how their images tell the story.
In our society we have laws. Can the students find a similarity between what happened to Jonah and what happens to people who break the law?
