Abstract. An outline is given, essentially from the Bayesian point of view, of the history of probability. Because probability theory is mathematical today, histories have tended to suppose it began with the first deeply mathematical exchange, between Pascal and Fermat in the 17th century. By analysing the structure, various literary techniques, and character roles in the Book of Jonah, this study shows that the author constructed his book very artfully to invigorate its purpose.

Probability—the likelihood of a given event—is a mathematical concept with many applications in everyday life. Children should begin by using their own experiences to describe probability in qualitative terms (certain, likely, possible, and unlikely). This exposure to probability builds a foundation for calculating and understanding. I am looking for a book (English only) that I can treat as a reference text (more colloquially as a bible) about probability and is as complete - with respect to an undergraduate/graduate education in Mathematics - as possible. What I mean by that is that the book should contain and rigorously address the following topics: Measure Theory (As a mathematical foundation for probability).
