Sign from Heaven

And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha. (Mark:8:10)


Dalmanutha - Probably of Chaldee origin; Dalmanutha a place in Palestine.


And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. (Mark:8:11)


And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. (Mark:8:12)


And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side. (Mark:8:13)


Matthew


And he sent away the multitude, and took ship, and came into the coasts of Magdala. (Matthew:15:39)


Magdala - a place in Palestine.


In the Gospel of Mark:


And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha. (Mark:8:10)


The Pharisees also with the Sadducees came, and tempting desired him that he would shew them a sign from heaven. (Matthew:16:1)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him. (Mark:8:11)


He answered and said unto them, When it is evening, ye say, It will be fair weather: for the sky is red. (Matthew:16:2)


And in the morning, It will be foul weather to day: for the sky is red and lowering. O ye hypocrites, ye can discern the face of the sky; but can ye not discern the signs of the times? (Matthew:16:3)


A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given unto it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas. And he left them, and departed. (Matthew:16:4)


In the Gospel of Mark:


And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation. (Mark:8:12)


The phrase, “A wicked and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign,” is unique to the Gospel of Matthew: The phrase, “But the sign of the prophet Jonas,” is unique to the Gospels of Matthew and Luke which means the character Jesus probably didn’t say them.


It’s safe to say that the character Jesus probably did say, “Verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.”


Luke


The author of the Gospel of Luke doesn’t have anything to say about the “Sign from Heaven.”


The author of the Gospel of Luke has nothing to say about, “Feeding the Five Thousand,” the character Jesus, “Walking on the Sea,” “What Defiles a Man,” “Dogs Under the Table” or the “Deaf and Dumb Man Speaks” either.
