The Sign of Jonah

Matthew 12:38-50

What does an evil person look like?  I Imagine he doesn't look like you.  We rarely envision evil people the way the Bible envisions an evil person.  Jesus teaches us that evil people do not operate by faith, but by sight.  Does that shock you?  The writer of Hebrews tells us that it is impossible to please God unless you have faith in Him (Hebrews 11:6).  Gideon asked for a sign, but it was by faith.  The Pharisees were demanding a sign.   They came with unbelief.  Jesus didn't refuse them a sign, but He told them that the sign would be His death and His resurrection.  He was saying to them that you must believe that I am the Messiah, the Lamb of God.  Religion had not transformed their souls, it had only intensified their judgment (verses 41-42).
