The function of the miracle stories in the Jonah narrative
The narrator uses the miracle stories in Jonah for characterization. His use of these stories is unique in the literature of the Old Testament, as he uses them to put God and Jonah diametrically opposed to each other. This can be seen from the way in which he combines different genres and uses several narrative techniques to construct the plot of the story.
