JONAH FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF JONAH: EMBODIED THEOLOGY ILLUSTRATED

his bodily and personal conduct also illustrate an unwillingness to change his
theological thinking. Religious, political, social and cultural aspects of larger
bodies are enacted through Jonah’s bodily performance. Jonah could not have acted
differently.
