Matthew 12:40 (a) This figure is used by the Lord as a type of Himself in that He was to be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth, as Jonah was three days and three nights in the whale's belly.
Also a type of the believer who, being given a commission by GOD, seeks to avoid it and evade it, but eventually is brought back into GOD's path ( Jonah 3:3).
Also a type of Israel the nation now scattered among the nations but who will be cast out by them so they may return to their own land. ( Jonah 1:17).
