They Got the Sign of Jonah sermon video. Because they repented that generation of Ninevites was not destroyed. That’s the sign of Jonah. Jesus was their Jonah. They got the sign of Jonah. If that wicked generation did not repent, it would be destroyed. They didn’t and were. In A.D. 70, 40 years later, Rome sent its armies and destroyed everything beginning in Galilee to Judea even burning and dismantling their religious temple. They got their sign alright. Sometimes getting a miraculous sign from heaven is not good.

Sermon notes

They Got the Sign of Jonah sermon video Luke 11:29-36

Scriptures: Luke 11:29-30: Luke 11:15-16; John 15:24; Jonah 1:1-2; Jonah 3:4-5; Luke 11:31; Luke 11:32; Luke 11:33-36; John 3:19; Luke 11:35

The crowd observed Jesus drive out a mute demon (v14). That sign wasn’t good enough. They wanted a sign from heaven, but would any miracle be good enough? Would any miracle overcome the damage the slander had already done, not to Jesus, but to the people’s belief in Jesus? That’s what slander does. It damages our belief in people… (continue sermon notes)
