I should have asked this question last week but I think it is important to discuss.
I want poll of everyone's understanding of Coptic Orthodoxy relating to Jonah.
Why is Jonah called a prophet?
I know the answer but I want to see what everyone else will say. After I will discuss the Orthodox understanding of Jonah and why it is important for us to discuss it.
PS: If your answer is "Just as Jonah was physically in the belly of the whale/fish/earth for three days and three nights so Christ was in the tomb for three days and three nights." - If this is your answer, then it is wrong.
PPS: I'll give you a hint. The answer is in the first verse of Jonah's doxology. But if you're relying on the Arabic or English translation, you'll end up with the same wrong answer above. The answer is in the Greek/Coptic.
