  He’s alluding to the Book of Jonah in the Old Testament and he’s drawing two analogies. He’s saying just as Jonah was in the belly of the whale for three days and three nights so will the Son of Man, now you know what that means right, it’s that himself as Messiah will be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights.   This is when the whale swallows Jonah. While in the belly of the whale, Jonah prays to the Lord. God told Jonah to go to Ninevah a second time and this time he went and preached as commanded. However, when the people repented and God saved them, Jonah became angry with God. The Lord used a plant to remind Jonah that He cares for all people.

But to Jonah this did not matter. He preferred to die rather than be the medium through which his people would be seen in a bad light. It was for this very reason that Jonah was so frustrated over his “success” at Nineveh, and why in the last part of the book he actually asked G‑d to take his life.

  Jewish tradition has it that Jonah was the boy that Elijah is famous for bringing back to life. He is one of the 12 minor prophets in the Tanakh, and the Book of Jonah is read every year on Yom Kippur. Jonah (Yunus in Arabic) is a very important Islamic prophet, and the big fish story in the Qur’an is very similar to the Bible’s. When Jonah was tossed into the sea, he was given up for dead. In the belley of the whale, he was, to all outside appearances, dead and gone. Even from Jonah's prayer, we get the sense that Jonah thought he was dead- just waiting for death inside the fish.

Many Christians are inclined to interpret the story of Jonah in the Old Testament as an allegory that was never meant to be understood as actual history.
