Based on a wide range on newly identified inner-biblical connections, this course presents a novel reading of the book of Jonah, whereby the prophet seeks to escape his divine mission in favor of the idyllic environment of the Garden of Eden. The story, it will be shown, yields two complementary portraits of this bliss-seeking Jonah: the moral perfectionist and the peaceful dove.
