Finely engraved print of Jonah at the harbor of the ancient port of Joppa (Jaffa-Tel Aviv) negotiating his embarkation.

Jonah is a prophet in the Hebrew Bible and the Quran, from Gath-hepher of the northern kingdom of Israel in about the 8th century BCE. Jonah is the central figure of the Book of Jonah, which details his reluctance in delivering God's judgement on the city of Nineveh, and then his subsequent return to the divine mission after he is swallowed by a large sea creature.
