So, let´s start with the episode. First, I will share with you some vocabulary that we will use in the story, and then I will read the story in English and Spanish.
Jonah was a prophet of God. One day, God told Jonah, «Go to the big city of Nineveh. Tell them to stop doing bad things.»
But Jonah ran away. He did not want to go to Nineveh. Instead he got on a boat to sail across the sea. God sent a big storm to stop Jonah. The sailors on the boat were afraid. They thought the boat was going to sink.
Jonah told the sailors, «My God has sent this storm. If you throw me into the water, the sea will becom calm again.»
So the sailors threw Jonah into the raiging sea. Instantly, the sea became calm.
Just then, Jonah saw a big fish coming. Gulp!, The fish swallowed Jonah.
For three days and nights, Jonah was inside the fish. He prayed to God, «Please forgive me».
Then God told the fish to spit Jonah onto dry land. God told Jonah a second time, «Go and tell the People of Nineveh to stop doing bad things».
This time, Jonah obeyed God. The people in Nineveh were sorry for doing bad things, so God forgave them.
