The story of Jonah is well documented in Scripture in a Book bearing his name. The Pharisees, Sadducees, Scribes, and all the people of Yeshua’s day would have been familiar with the prophet Jonah and his exploits. Yeshua referenced Jonah on several occasions when asked by the religious leaders to perform a sign for them to prove Himself to them.
Most who preach about Jonah focus on the three days and three nights that Jonah was in the belly of the fish as Yeshua illustrated in one of His references to Jonah. However, there was much more to the story of Jonah.
In this passage, Yeshua would use this opportunity, after speaking about the sign of Jonah, to call attention to the teachings of the Pharisees and Sadducees and to caution His Disciples about their teachings.
