    Jonah and the Fish proven to be TRUE NOT Mythological

    This is one of the Bible stories most ridiculed by people who consider themselves sophisticated and intellectual. Skeptics say that no whale or Fish could swallow a man in the first place, and, even if he did, the man would certainly never survive three days and three nights in his belly, as the Bible claims. Most people including Hebrew Israelites think that Jonah is Mythological.

    What kind of animal swallowed Jonah? In the passage above, the Greek word translated "whale" actually means a huge fish or sea monster. In the passage in Jonah (1:17; 2:1,10), the Hebrew word was the normal word for "fish," but here the word is modified by the word great.


    So what I have done to prove this did happen, I researched all the fish in the Mediterranean Sea that could swallow a man, I also found old artifacts found in Rome of a ancient fish that do not have any teeth and still known to attack divers off the Mediterranean coast today.

    The name of this ancient biblical fish is GROUPER .

    The dusky grouper has been a popular target for Mediterranean fishermen since prehistoric times – their bones have been found in human settlements dating back more than 100,000 years. It's a slow growing, flavorful and, with the advent of modern sport fishing, endangered species.

    Danger to Humans
    Very large goliath grouper have been observed to stalk divers and even conduct unsuccessful ambushes of the same. Large individuals of this species should be treated with caution.

    Using depictions of the fish in Roman mosaics, the researchers Micheli and Paolo Guidetti of the University of Salento in Italy suggest that groupers should be much larger and should be found at shallower depths than they are today. The paper appears this week in Frontiers in Ecology and the Environment.

    This ancient Roman mosaic from the Bardo National Museum in Tunis shows a giant grouper swallowing a fisherman.

    unlike today's animals, the groupers in Roman mosaics are depicted as being enormous – in one case, large enough to eat a fisherman whole.

    Note: Notice how big these Fish could get now image how big they got 2 or 3 thousand yrs ago

    Mosaics show men fishing for groupers with harpoons at the water's surface. Today, this would be unheard of – modern sport fishermen spearfish groupers in deep water. But writings from the time corroborate this Roman view of the grouper as a shallow-water fish – the Roman writers Pliny and Ovid both describe angling for groupers from shore.

    Shalam!

    Sorry, but had to chuckle at the sight of the fisherman with all his back side out, even the detail of the cheeks.
