The Sign of Jonah

Jonah 1:1-2Now the Word of the Lord came unto Jonah the son of Amittai, saying, Arise, go to Ninevah, that great city, and cry against it; for their wickedness is come up before me.

Matthew 16:1-4The Pharisees and Sadducees came up, and testing Jesus, they asked Him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 But He replied to them, “When it is evening, you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.’ 3 And in the morning, ‘There will be a storm today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Do you know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but cannot discern the signs of the times? 4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign; and a sign will not be given it, except the sign of Jonah.” And He left them and went away.

From NetBible Mt 16:4

From NetBible Jonah 1:1

  • Amittai[0573] = my truth
    *from [0571] = firmness, faithfulness, reliableness, truth
    ** as spoken of testimony, judgment, divine instruction

Interesting …
The sign of Jonah the son of Amittai =
The sign of (the dove)
The son of (My-the Lord’s truth, faithfulness, spoken testimony)
