The Lord Shall Be Respected
Noah was chosen by the Lord to be the only life spared, joined by his family. He is spared by the Lord from the flood that will wipe out all of mankind and any living thing on all of the earth. The lord believed that Noah was " a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, and he walked with God" (Genesis 6:9). He was trusted to recreate the earth for the better because he "found favor in the eyes of the LORD" (Genesis 6:8).

The Story of Jonah is about disobedience. In particular, rather than obeying the Lords request to go to the city of Nineveh, Jonah ran away and "sailed for Tarshish to flee from the Lord" (Jonah 1:3). On his flee; he was struck with a storm at sea from the lord. It was not until he was awoken by a desperate sailor that he then realized the only way to save the ship, was to "pick [him] up and throw [him] into the sea" (Jonah 1:12). After being thrown into the water, he was eaten by a fish for three days and three nights. The Lord granted this upon him because he did not obey. But once Jonah was inside of the fish, he reached out to the Lord for help and forgiveness for he has learned that "those who cling to worthless idols forfeit the grace that could be theirs" (Jonah 2:8). Therefore he understands the greatness of what can come from obedience.

If Jesus were to be similarly compared to Noah or Jonah, he would be most like Noah. Noah and Jesus are both followers of the Lord and obey what they are told. For example, in The Story of Jesus, when Satan takes him to various places to prove himself the Son of God, he does not fall for any of the devils tricks. Rather, he simply states the written laws. Specifically, when Satan bribes Jesus for all the kingdoms of the world just for him to "bow down and worship [him]", Jesus speaks back "away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord you god, and serve him only'" (Matthew 4:9-10). Like Jesus showing loyalty towards the Lord, Noah acted in the same way. In Noah's case, he was the only one who "found favor in the eyes of the LORD" (Genesis 6:8) therefore, he was the only one granted the opportunity to live, and the responsibility save the earth. God saw Noah as "a righteous man, blameless among the people of his time, [who] walked with God" (Genesis 6:9). And Like Noah, God is "well pleased" with Jesus (Mathew 3:17).
The Story of Daedalus and Icarus relates to The Story of Jonah by sharing a similar theme. The theme shared by both stories is disobedience. Jonah disobeyed the Lord's quest to go to the city of Nineveh, ...
