"Give Us A Sign…"
“Give Us A Sign…”
They refused to see.
They wanted more “evidence”, though they had seen and heard.
The religious rulers of the day of Jesus.
Remember what we saw yesterday?
They wanted another sign.
The Lord said that the only sign they would receive was the sign of Jonah…
38 Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered him, saying, “Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you.”
39 But he answered them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah.
40 For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.
The same happens today.
People, especially academic religious rulers, refuse to see.
They refuse to see that Jesus stated:
- that Jonah was real
- that Jonah was in the belly of the great fish (most of academia do not believe this, they think it is a “fish story&rdquo
- that what happened to Jonah was a “sign”
- that the Lord said that He, the Son of Man, would be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights
- that it is an evil and adulterous generation that insists on another sign while rejecting the very Truth before you
Be not of that generation.
The Resurrection of the Lord Jesus is the greatest sign.
