DISCLAIMER:  Not all the information of Jim Bartley’s story can be corroborated. However, this doesn’t mean that the story of Jonah ben Amittai, prophet from Gath Hepher, is untrue, as it was a supernatural event orchestrated by God (Jonah 1:17; 2:10). Even Jesus, when pressed to give evidence of His deity, said that if the sign of Jonah is not enough, then nothing would persuade anyone into believing His death and resurrection (Matthew 12:38-41). Ultimately, the story of Jonah points to Jesus Christ.
