Warfield: the sign

Wednesday, June 4, 2014
    [Jesus:] “A wicked and adulterous generation looks for a miraculous sign, but none will be given it except the sign of Jonah.” Jesus then left them and went away.
    —Matthew 16:4 (NIV)
    Our Lord Himself deliberately staked His whole claim to the credit of men upon His resurrection. When asked for a sign, He pointed to this sign as His single and sufficient credential.
    ... Benjamin B. Warfield (1851-1921), The Saviour of the World [1914], Cherry Hill, N.J.: Mack Publishing, 1972, p. 196 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 16:4; Jonah 1:17; Matt. 12:39-40; 16:21; Luke 11:29-30; John 2:19; Acts 1:3; 2:24; 10:39-41; Rom. 1:2-4; 8:11; 10:9; 1 Cor. 1:24; 15:4-8,14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, in raising Your Son, You have vindicated all that He said and did.
