Jonah was a prophet in the Old Testament, who received from God the commission to preach repentance in the Niniva hated by the Jewish Town. Jonah tried to escape but God, he fled by ship. God then allowed to break loose a violent storm on the sea. The sailors were terrified, threw the dice and chose among other passengers straight from Jona, to throw him overboard, because they held him responsible for the wrath of God. When Jonah was thrown into the sea, the storm passed and the ship sailed happily on.

Then Jonah was swallowed by a great fish. After spending three days and nights in the belly of the fish, Jonah repented his actions and promised God his obedience. Finally, he was then spewed from fish to land and actually went on the road to Niniva. The inhabitants of Niniva repented and did penance and God forgave them their sins. Jonah felt because of the grace of God expressed in relation to the sinful people very offended, so he looked at the city only from afar. About the night grew near him an ivy that made Jonah shade. But the next day the ivy was eaten by a worm and withered in the sun. Jonah was grieved and God taught him: „You are sad because of a plant, and I would like sadly then been due to a city like Niniva!“
