"But there is something greater than Solomon here." Matthew 12 : 38
Flowers

Here the Scribes and Pharisees who really are no friends of Jesus,  ask Him for a sign.  They have already witnessed His teaching and His miracles but they are not satisfied.  He reminds them of the prophet Jonah and the conversion of the people of Nineveh.  He reminds them of the wisdom of Solomon which was sought after by the high and mighty and here before them is someone greater than Solomon being questioned.

Prayer

Dear Jesus, seat of wisdom, we too ask questions and when we get the answers we still do not change our ways. We are like the Scribes and Pharisees of old who hounded you. Jesus have pity on our lack of faith. Keep us strong in the faith. May we with your help, deepen it further. Amen
