Tuesday, April 25: They asked him for a sign from heaven. He sighed deeply


MarkThe Gospel of Mark emphasizes Jesus' role as a servant. Join with us as we venture through one section of this vital gospel that recounts many of Jesus' actions during his ministry years.

Read Mark 8:11-13

The Pharisees came and began to question Jesus. To test him, they asked him for a sign from heaven. He sighed deeply and said, "Why does this generation ask for a sign? Truly I tell you, no sign will be given to it." Then he left them, got back into the boat and crossed to the other side.



The miracles of the Bible are deliberate events meant to demonstrate who God is and the truth of what he's said. But as incredible as this very public miracle was, the Pharisees still weren't satisfied. They were threatened by Jesus' popularity and demanded more proof of who Jesus is.


Jesus knew that nothing he did would diminish the Pharisees' stubborn doubt and desire to discredit him. Perhaps you know some who are similarly skeptical. Pray for their eyes to be opened to see who Jesus is and how faith in him can change everything.
