Jonah, week 6 – Rusty Hutson, March 25, 2018

Matthew 12: 38-41

Jesus refuses them any sign except the sign of Jonah – three days in the earth, and the only sign you will receive be the resurrection. What is Jesus saying to “this generation?”

Our Generation

1 Corinthians 15:55-57 – we are still being worked on to not be a wicked and adulterous generation. Sin has broken all of us, and the only means of being good is to be in Christ.

The only Good is in God.

Jesus is Greater

Jesus ends up in the grave out of his obedience (contrary to Jonah’s grave of the fish from his disobedience).

Jonah pursues comfort and self while Jesus says, “It’s not about me, but about the will of the Father.”

Jesus is Right in Front of Us

Do we actually see him? The Pharisees couldn’t see him for who he was. How could they miss him?

Do we see him, truly?

How is Jesus not only Savior, but Lord of your Life?
