This cartoon clip-art style pictures shows Jonah running away from God. The illustration shows two directional signs, one points toward Nineveh and the other toward Tarshish. This scene is from the first chapter of the book of Jonah.

Now the word of the LORD came to Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, “Arise, go to Nineveh, that great city, and call out against it, for their evil has come up before me.” But Jonah rose to flee to Tarshish from the presence of the LORD. He went down to Joppa and found a ship going to Tarshish. So he paid the fare and went on board, to go with them to Tarshish, away from the presence of the LORD. (Jonah 1:1-3 ESV)

    Thank you very much. This is a great help and will be totally enjoyed by the children in the Sunday school. Thank you and be blessed always.

    The coloring page you did Carlos is wonderful. Thank you. I don’t teach bible stories per se, I teach the Books of the Bible. The age group varies from 9-12 as does the experience level of the girls in the study. These will make it easier to relate some of these concepts to the younger ones. Please keep up the good work. You are truly helping to fulfill the Great Commission.
