Jonah's Biblical story is interpreted in Christianity as the herald of the second coming of Jesus. Moreover, Jesus hinted at Pisces (the whale, the big fish of Jonah) when he said in Matthew 12:39:

But he answered and said unto them: an evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jona.
