Bugtime Adventures: A Lot to Swallow


“A Lot to Swallow: The Story of Jonah”—Jonah is given a mission by God but chooses to disobey and instead boards a ship going in the opposite direction. Thrown overboard during a storm, he survives three days in the belly of a whale where he repents and is given a second opportunity to deliver God’s message.

Dove Review

“Bugtime Adventures” are wonderful stories from the Bible that are told through the eyes of bugs. Each 30-minute adventure will captivate the entire family and bring the tale to life for all to enjoy.

This is the story of Jonah and the whale thanks to two little ants and a caterpillar that find themselves in Jonah’s sack. Jonah has decided to go in the opposite direction rather than follow what God has asked him to do. Along the way our little friends also learn a lot about themselves.

This is a Bugtime Adventure that tells the story from the Bible, but also teaches lessons about helping others—including your enemies—asking for mercy, and following God’s plan. We are proud to award this episode of Bugtime Adventures with the Dove “Faith-Friendly” Seal for all ages.
