A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.
When I re-read my notes on this passage, I discovered an interesting idea: that the sign of Jonah (that is 3 days of death followed by a resurrection) might actually be a “model” for other things. It’s a holy number, “3,” and it just makes me wonder. It’s similar to the “death of a vision” concept. Sometimes we have to be willing to allow an idea or “vision” to die before God can resurrect it in its “true state.” And so, I’m just thinking, maybe all decisions should wait 3 days … or before an action is taken, give it 3 days … or whatever. Something to ponder… for three days, I guess. :-)
