Top  Previous  Next

Apr 6 6.20 Then some scribes and Pharisees answered him, “Teacher, we want to see a miracle.”1

     He answered, “A wicked, adulterous generation wants a sign, none will be given besides that of prophet Jonah.2 For as he was in the whales belly for three days and nights, so will the Son of man be for three days and nights in the earths belly. The men of Nineveh will stand against this generation in judgment and condemn it. They repented at Jonahs preaching, and One greater than Jonah is here. The Queen of Sheba will at the judgment rise against this generation and condemn it. For she came from the ends of the earth to hear Solomons wisdom, and One greater than Solomon is here.”
