As the crowds were increasing, He began to say, “This generation is a wicked generation; it seeks for a sign, and yet no sign will be given to it but the sign of Jonah. Luke 11:29
The world is continually looking for a sign. There is a lot of “Christian” literature and books about signs, this nation is fighting with this nation, this leader said this, however Jesus is saying “He is The Sign”!
Jesus references Nineveh, there only sign was an unwilling prophet named Jonah. Who eventually answered his calling and brought the nation to come to repentance. So was there some miraculous sign from God to bring the nation of Nineveh to repentance? No , there was one preacher with the Word of God
“For just as Jonah became a sign to the Ninevites, so will the Son of Man be to this generation. Luke 11:30
Jesus said “Jonah was the only sign for the nation of Nineveh, and Jesus will be the only sign to this generation. Now we can get into specifics about what specific group Jesus is reference here, however here’s the point, isn’t Jesus enough for you?
If you truly believe who Jesus says he is, shouldn’t that be enough? If Jesus is Immanuel, God in the flesh, and rose from the dead after 3 days, what more do you need? If you cant get excited about God coming down here to Earth to deliver us from our sins, what else is going to excite you?
If the resurrection of Christ, which is a historical fact, cant convince you then what else is there?
