Let us muse again today from Matthew 12:40 and the theme of Jesus the king. In our text for this day we find the mention of Jonah as the Jesus’s story. In the story Jonah was cast in the water to die. Our Lord was crucified and as Jonah was 3 days and 3 nights in the belly of the whale our Lord was in the heart of the earth. Joan was raised from the belly of the whale as even our Lord was raised from the grave of deadness. Jonah being raised commanded the attention of all of Nineveh, should not the proof of the resurrection of Jesus Christ command the attention of all that hear Him. His Father said this is my beloved Son, hear ye Him.
