1.1–17 :

Jonah flees from God. The book of Jonah begins, as do other prophetic books, with the phrase the word of the LORD came to…( 1.1; Hos 1.1 ), but unlike other prophets, Jonah embarks on an elaborate plan to escape his calling. The motif * of descent runs through the narrative * of Jonah's attempt to escape (vv. 3, 5, 15 ).

3 :

Tarshish is a site of uncertain location on the Mediterranean coast west of Israel (Isa 23.1 ), in the opposite direction from Nineveh to the east. Joppa is an ancient Mediterranean port city, just south of modern Tel Aviv.

4 :

Israel's God is frequently associated with the thunderstorm (Ex 19.16–17; Ps 18.7–15 ).
