Easter 2010 - The Sign of the Prophet Jonah (Mt 12:38-42)
On more than one occasion Jesus alluded to the life of Jonah to explain the significance of his ministry. And it is to one of these occasions that I want to direct our attention this morning. The reason is that Jesus’ allusion to the prophet Jonah helps us understand both the meaning of Jesus’ ministry and the meaning of the resurrection which we are celebrating this Easter morning.
