Then some of the scribes and Pharisees said to him, "Teacher, we wish to see a sign from you." He said to them in reply, "An evil and unfaithful generation seeks a sign, but no sign will be given it except the sign of Jonah the prophet. Just as Jonah was in the belly of the whale three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights” (Matthew 12: 38-40).
If someone has already given you a really nice birthday present, would you think it would be OK to still ask them for a sign of their friendship? That would be insulting and rude. The Pharisees were doing just this. Jesus had already performed plenty of miracles, taught for hours and served everyone around them … they still did not believe.
Jesus, I believe in You and I want to follow You.
