Unexpected Response By This Little Girl
Little Susan raised her hand and said: “Ms. Jefferys I just learned that Jonah in the bible was swallowed by a whale.”
The teacher replied that it is physically impossible for a whale to swallow a human because even though it is a very large mammal, its throat is very small.
The girl did not believe her teacher and replied, “Ms. Jefferys I am almost certain Jonah was swallowed by a whale.”
“I am telling you, it is not possible,” replied the teacher.
The little girl raised her hand again. “My Sunday school teacher told me Jonah was swallowed by a whale and she would NEVER lie to me.”
Frustrated, the teacher replied, “That is a ‘story’ from the bible, it is not factual, and I will not argue with you anymore Susan”
After a little thought, the girl finally said, “Well then, when I get to heaven, I will ask Jonah myself”.
In an attempt to fluster the little girl, the teacher replied, “What if Jonah didn’t go to heaven?”
The girl quickly responded, ” . . . . . ok, then YOU ask him.”
