Bible: Matthew 16:1-4

The Demand for a Sign

16:1 Now when the Pharisees 1  and Sadducees 2  came to test Jesus, 3  they asked him to show them a sign from heaven. 4  16:2 He 5  said, “When evening comes you say, ‘It will be fair weather, because the sky is red,’ 16:3 and in the morning, ‘It will be stormy today, because the sky is red and darkening.’ 6  You know how to judge correctly the appearance of the sky, 7  but you cannot evaluate the signs of the times. 16:4 A wicked and adulterous generation asks for a sign, but no sign will be given to it except the sign of Jonah.” Then 8  he left them and went away.
