The Great Fish


What was the fish that swallowed Jonah?

The Bible book of Jonah has often been called “the story of Jonah and the whale” and gives the account of Jonah, a prophet of God, who disobeyed God’s command to preach to the people of Nineveh.  But extraordinary aspects of the story have led some to question whether it is a historical account, or simply a parable.  At the heart of this controversy is the seemingly impossible report of Jonah being swallowed by a “great fish” and living inside it for three days, only to be spewed out unto the shore alive.  Is this a fish or a whale?  Can a man live inside either for three days and nights?

Friends, today life seems choppy on the surface, the water may look dark, and the boat is certainly tossing and turning.

Life on the Coral Reef

The coral reef has the highest diversity of life seen anywhere on God’s wonderful earth.  Plankton, fish, mollusks, hard and soft corals, and marine mammals are an exquisite display of God’s beauty, creativity and splendor.  Life on the Coral Reef is filled with stunning examples of God’s design along with the scriptural background that supports it.

God’s Underwater World

God’s Underwater World is a presentation on the diversity and complexity of God’s design in the waters of the world.  From fresh water springs to the ocean; from plankton to whales – God’s design is evident.  In this presentation Tec Clark points out scriptural references in God’s creation of the underwater world and our command to care for it by being proper stewards of God’s underwater world.
