Jonah the Prophet; Jesus the Savior

               Matthew 12:38-42

Jesus was asked for a miracle sign.

He foretold His death and resurrection.

He compared Himself to prophet Jonah.

Jesus showed that He Himself was the sign.


Jesus was greater than prophet Jonah.

Jesus was greater than King Solomon.

After death, Jesus Christ would rise again.

Jesus did it without any trash talk.


Kenny Loggins sang, “This Is It.”  “Are you

Gonna wait for a sign, your miracle?”

He  encouraged his father to work out

After he had serious surgery.


Workouts are recess for the elderly.

Let’s be glad for the opportunities.
