The Brief Visit to Magdala ►
And sending away the crowds, Jesus got into the boat and came to the region of Magadan.
1 The 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.
5 And the disciples came to the other side of the sea, but they had forgotten to bring any bread. 6 And Jesus said to them, Watch out and beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees. 7 They began to discuss this among themselves, saying, He said that because we did not bring any bread. 8 But Jesus, aware of this, said, You men of little faith, why do you discuss among yourselves that you have no bread? 9 Do you not yet understand or remember the five loaves of the five thousand, and how many baskets full you picked up? 10 Or the seven loaves of the four thousand, and how many large baskets full you picked up? 11 How is it that you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread? But beware of the leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.
And immediately He entered the boat with His disciples and came to the district of Dalmanutha.
11 The Pharisees came out and began to argue with Him, seeking from Him a sign from heaven, to test Him. 12 Sighing deeply in His spirit, He said, Why does this generation seek for a sign? Truly I say to you, no sign will be given to this generation.
