This is a 14 slide, highly animated, power point presentation on Religion – Children’s Bible Stories – Jonah, Johnny & Obedience. Each of the slides are editable so you can modify the slides to the presentation as needed. I have also included a slide called “Think about the Story” for student review and questions.
Jonah was a prophet of God in the Bible who God said go to the wicked city of Nineveh and tell them to repent of their sins or face God's judgment! Jonah did not want to go. He didn’t like the people and didn’t care about what would happen to them. So, Jonah told God “No” and tried to escape in a boat, but God sent a great storm upon the water and everyone on board feared the ship was going to sink.
Back then, the sailors believed that by punishing a sinner, it would please God and make the storm go away. Just as the boat was about to be destroyed, Jonah confessed his sins to the Captain. Jonah informed the Captain that he was to be thrown overboard into the sea. Reluctantly the Captain obeyed Jonah, and immediately after Jonah landed in the water, he was swallowed by a whale.
This is the story of Johnny who lived in by the sea near Nineveh. He really liked it there because he really liked to run down to the ocean to see all the fishing boats when they came in. With all their boats loaded with fish. He thought that someday he might grow up to be a fisherman himself. One day he was down by the ocean waiting for the boats to come in. He was there because his parents had asked him to do some chores, but Johnny disobeyed and ran away.
