Both Jesus and Jonah experience similar crises of faith, only to be brought back from the dead. My figure explores the story of Jonah and how it relates to Jesus in the New Testament.
‘For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale, so will the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth’
