The Sign of Jonah (Matthew 12:38-42)


Sermon by Daniel L. Sonnenberg | September 22, 2013


Text:

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.  

41 The men of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.  42 The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here.  (Matt. 12:38-42 ESV)
