“The Sign of the Prophet Jonah”
There is not much point, Lord, in our trying to get our minds around the sign of the resurrection of Jesus Christ, but if we can get our hearts and spirits wrapped around it—or maybe better put, if it can get wrapped around our hearts and spirits—well, that makes all the difference.
Let it be, dear Lord—let it be.
“But he answered them, ‘An evil and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For just as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the sea monster, so for three days and three nights the Son of Man will be in the heart of the earth.’” (Matthew 12:39-40)
