   JESUS  IS ASKED for a  SIGN
91 Matt 12 Mark 190 Luke 11
38 Then some of the scribes   29 When the crowds
        were increasing,
  and Pharisees said to him      
  "Teacher,      
  we wish to see a sign from you."      
39 But he answered them,     he began to say,
        "This generation is
  "An evil     an evil
  and adulterous generation     generation;
  seeks for a sign;     it seeks a sign,
  but no sign shall be given to it     but no sign shall be given to it
  except the sign      except the sign 
  of the prophet Jonah.     of Jonah.
40 For as Jonah   30 For as Jonah
  was three days and three nights     became a sign
  in the belly of the whale,     to the men of Nineveh,
  so will the Son of man be     so will the Son of man be
  three days and three nights      
  in the heart of the earth.     to this generation.
41 The men of Nineveh will arise*     [see Luke 11:32 below]
  at the judgment      
  with this generation      
  and condemn it;      
  for they repented      
  at the preaching of Jonah,      
  and behold,      
  something greater than Jonah      
  is here.      
42 The queen of the South   31 The queen of the South
  will arise at the judgment     will arise at the judgment
  with this generation     with the men of this generation
  and condemn it;     and condemn them;
  for she came      for she came 
  from the ends of the earth     from the ends of the earth
  to hear     to hear
  the wisdom of Solomon,     the wisdom of Solomon,
  and behold, something     and behold, something
  greater than Solomon      greater than Solomon 
  is here."     is here.
  [see Matt 12:41 above]   32 The men of Nineveh will arise*
        at the judgment
        with this generation 
        and condemn it;
        for they repented
        at the preaching of Jonah,
        and behold,
        something greater than Jonah 
        is here."
141 Matt 16 141 Mark 8 204 Luke 12
1 The Pharisees and Sadducees 11 The Pharisees    
  came   came    
  and   and began    
  to test* Jesus   to argue with him,    
  they asked him   seeking from him    
  to show them a sign   a sign    
  from heaven.   from heaven,    
      to test* him.    
    12 And he sighed deeply    
      in his spirit,    
2 He answered them,   and said,    
  "When it is evening,      

[see Luke 12:54-56]

  you say,        
  `It will be fair weather;        
  for the sky is red.'        
3 And in the morning,        
  `It will be stormy today,        
  for the sky is red        
  and threatening.'        
  You know how to interpret        
  the appearance of the sky,        
  but you cannot interpret        
  the signs of the times.        
4 An evil   "Why does    
  and adulterous generation   this generation    
  seeks for a sign;   seek a sign?    
      Truly, I say to you,    
  but no sign shall be given    no sign shall be given    
  to it   to this generation."    
  except the sign of Jonah."        
  So he left them 13 And he left them,    
      and getting into the boat    
      again    
  and departed.   he departed     
      to the other side.
