The collective stories that i chose to use to help me is firstly the King James Bible version of Jonah and the whale, because it is the one that people are most familiar with in the renditions of the Story of Jonah, the story being that when Jonah went against what God had order him to do and instead went on his own journey, by him doing that it angered God, and God demanded the whale to swallow him. Secondly I am going to use the Disney’s version of Pinochio, using the scene where Gepetto and Pinochio are on a raft during a storm and are swallowed by a sperm whale, and seeing as how in both stories the men are swallowed by whales and making a connection between the two and maybe seeing if the story of Jonah inspired the Scene from Pinochio. Then for my third collective story is probably going to be a stretch of a connection, i was thinking along the lines of other Bible stories were an animal has played an important role in the story such as with Abraham and Isaac when God commanded Abraham to kill Isaac to show his devotion and obedience so Abraham goes to fulfill his assignment and right before he stabs his son Isaac the Lord commanded him to stop and supplied a ram for a sacrifice in Isaac’s place, or in the story of Daniel, when Daniel was thrown into the lions den and yet the lions did not eat him. So hopefully those stories will give me more incite.
