The Sign of Jonah

11:29-32pp -- Mt 12:39-42

29 As the crowds increased, Jesus said, "This is a wicked generation. It asks for a miraculous sign,1 but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.2 30 For as Jonah was a sign to the Ninevites, so also will the Son of Man be to this generation. 31 The Queen of the South will rise at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them; for she came from the ends of the earth to listen to Solomon's wisdom,3 and now onea greater than Solomon is here. 32 The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah,4 and now one greater than Jonah is here.

The Lamp of the Body

11:34,35pp -- Mt 6:22,23

33 "No one lights a lamp and puts it in a place where it will be hidden, or under a bowl. Instead he puts it on its stand, so that those who come in may see the light.5 34 Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eyes are good, your whole body also is full of light. But when they are bad, your body also is full of darkness. 35 See to it, then, that the light within you is not darkness. 36 Therefore, if your whole body is full of light, and no part of it dark, it will be completely lighted, as when the light of a lamp shines on you."
