Old City of Jaffa

—The Gate to the Ancient World —

According to the biblical book of Jonah. God told Jonah to go to Nineveh and tell its inhabitants that they had sinned. But Jonah refused and instead, boarded a ship in the Jaffa port bound for Tarshish. During the voyage a storm broke out. Jonah understood that this was his punishment, and asked to be thrown into the sea, where he was swallowed by a great fish. Afterward God forgave Jonah and the great fish spit him out. Jonah then went on to Nineveh to prophesy as he had been commanded.
