Daily Word Of God

Luke 11:29-32

The crowds got even bigger and he addressed them, ‘This is an evil generation; it is asking for a sign. The only sign it will be given is the sign of Jonah. For just as Jonah became a sign to the people of Nineveh, so will the Son of man be a sign to this generation.

‘On Judgement Day the Queen of the South will stand up against the people of this generation and be their condemnation, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon; and, look, there is something greater than Solomon here.

‘On Judgement Day the men of Nineveh will appear against this generation and be its condemnation, because when Jonah preached they repented; and, look, there is something greater than Jonah here.’

Today's Pointers on God's Word

As you read the passage what words, phases or meanings caught your attention?

  • In today’s Gospel Jesus reproached the skeptical religious leaders when they demanded a sign from Him to prove His claim that He is from God.


  • Jesus, our Messiah has confirmed His claim by many miracles, including His resurrection on the third day. Yet, sadly, millions of people still do not believe that He is the Savior of the world. They are either waiting for more signs or just not interested in what He is offering.


  • Do we still doubt that Jesus can offer us eternal life with Him? If we believe in Him, then what are we doing daily to make Him and His Good News known?
