I am diving into my study in preparation for my lesson sometime in August, and also one that won't be divisive. This is a unique study for me and most on this board, since about all people ever debate around here is Theology. Few seem to dive into textual criticism, and Biblical studies. I am using a commentary on the book by Henry Morris whom takes a verse by verse approach, rather than a theological approach that some have taken in other books. When I do my outline for the class I'd like to cover the facts of the book and one major fact being that no historical nor archeological evidence has been found to support the book, and the fact that there are many scholars that believe the book to be an allegory. However the Lord Jesus himself declared the book true and put to rest all the books written by liberal scholars. How would you do an introduction to Jonah?
