actually, the hebrew word for fish that is used is very loose. it literally translates to "creature of the sea". it is believed that Jonah was swallowed by a sperm whale, since they have been known to swallow humans. another popular belief is a great white shark, because of the mouth size, but because of the size of the throat of a great white shark, it's impossible for jonah to have been swallowed whole.
Speak up, judge righteously, and defend the cause of the needy and oppressed.

Um, a big fish... God can make a big fish, and make it neither of those things if He wants to.

The Bible actually (as TheJaguar said) doesn't say what swallowed Jonah. Most people assume it was some sort of whale, but the Bible only says, "a fish." I think it's quite safe to assume that it was a whale. But what swallowed Jonah has no relation our our salvation, so why worry about something that doesn't affect us? :)

God Bless!

For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Than Jonah would have to be ten times smaller, or the grouper, fifteen times larger. So i would stick with whale, but another explanation could be megladon.
So let me sing for the love
Let me love for the lost
Let me lose all I have
For what I found on the cross
Let me trust you with my life
Let me live to give you praise
Lord, let me praise you
For the grace by which I'm saved
Lord, let me sing

Well different bibles say different things, but there is still one posssibility. As many of us study the bible, we always relate animals to modern day animals. I propose that for the fish, megladon could be the perfect fish of choice. I think this because i dont believe extinction before humanity. Although you guys will oppose this, by saying that the big fish went extinct before jonah, that doesnt mean it isnt true. Oh, and you know what is the true truth, we dont know, when we go to God, he will tell us. I also propose to also relate our study of the Bible to those ancient animals, that are thougt to have gone extinct in the early lives of man. So come on guys, it seems that us Christians, are now becoming the believers of extinction before man. And lets also not underestimate our God.

Bibles like NIV, NKJ and others are discorrect. I don't remember excatly where it is but in one placein the KJV it was a prophesy about Jesus. It said basically that Jesus would get wounds in his hands and his feet in at his friends house. Several of the different versions changed it so it said scars in his hands and feet that he got while fighting with his friend. Eventually it got so it said wounds in His chest then scars in his chest. It went so far as to say a black eye that he got from running into a door at his friends house. If you want to learn more, my cousin made a video about it. You can find it on www.savannahpictures.com. It's name is Sola Scriptura: The Bible and the Bible Only. It's stunning. :ohmy: After watching it I'm only using the KJV! :)

@sunnyside, i think the word you're looking for is 'incorrect' not 'discorrect'

I totally agree with you. Before the word dinosaur was coined in the 1800's, the word to describe this huge reptilian beast was the word dragon. When people hear this name, they think of magical four-legged beasts with wings that do nothing but terror and don't exist anywhere but imagination. What i am trying to say here, is that the first KJV had dragon mentioned 30-35 times. In today's versions, the name is said less than 7 times. What happened? Well its our fear that we won't be believed in. Also we want to change the Bible so that it can match the current date, but this is incorrect. Gods word can never be changed. Yes, its true the Bible hasn't changed dramatically over thousands of years, but little bits of it have been changed, so that people can think that we are crazy. If you think I am crazy, then i will give you some youtube links. and . Thanks for reading.

The Hebrew word for whale that is used is very loose, and under literal translation means large sea animal. So it could have meant whale, or shark, or dolphin, or mutant tuna fish :cheer:.

It says a big fish, so we don't exactly know what it was. A big fish in those days could have been a whale or even a shark like Jibg_99 said. I'll just say BIG FISH! :D
Blessed Assurance! Jesus is mine!
