Best of the Bible


Cliff Richard – once labelled at Britain’s answer to Elvis in the 1950s – lists his favourite Bible stories in The Times. I suppose I like Jonah and the Whale. Imagine being stuck in a whale’s stomach for a few days? That would learn yer for disobeying the Lord and certainly an innovative punishment. Last week, I was actually reading a book about whaling – Nathaniel Philbrick’s In The Heart of the Sea, which concerns a whaling ship called the Essex that was sunk by a sperm whale. The crew were forced to travel thousands of miles across the ocean and it got so bad that people were eating people. Incredible story.

Here’s a different take on the Jonah and the Whale story from the VeggieTales crew. VeggieTales are animated vegetables in case you don’t know.
