     | 3,796 views

    God had instructed Jonah, God had spoken to Jonah, I believe to go to a certain place to preach the gospel, but the bible say’s that Jonah turned to a different direction in order to disobey or runaway from God.

    Contributed by Ajai Prakash on Dec 11, 2013
    based on 1 rating
     | 3,822 views
