At that time some of the legal experts and the Pharisees requested of Jesus, "Teacher, we would like to see a sign from you."
But he replied, “An evil and unfaithful generation searches for a sign, but it won't receive any sign except Jonah's sign. 40Just as Jonah was in the whale's belly for three days and three nights,a so the Human Oneb will be in the heart of the earth for three days and three nights. 41The citizens of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it as guilty, because they changed their hearts and lives in response to Jonah's preaching. And look, someone greater than Jonah is here. 42The queen of the South will be raised up by God at the judgment with this generation and condemn it because she came from a distant land to hear Solomon's wisdom. And look, someone greater than Solomon is here.
