2 Kings 14:25
14:25 Jonah. This passage clearly proves the historicity of the prophet Jonah. Liberal theologians and skeptics generally have denied the truth of the story of Jonah and the whale, arguing that it was merely a parable. According to this record, however, Jonah was well-known as a prophet in Israel for other prophecies in addition to those on his prophetic missionary journey to Nineveh, the capital of the large and dangerous Assyrian empire.
