The irony of this passage is that what the people are demanding is right in front of them, but because of their lack of faith they cannot grasp it. We want proof through extraordinary signs that Jesus is who he says he is. We at times fear the risk that faith demands. Nevertheless, salvation is based on faith and faith always involves risk. There will be no sign other than the sign of Jonah.
