Waiting for miracles? Consider Jesus' resurrection

In reading Matthew 12, there are two verses that have bothered my soul. Jesus goes around performing miracles and refuting critics who are plotting to kill him and he amazes the crowd constantly. In the midst of this, in verses 38 and 39, someone states, "Teacher, we want you to show us a sign." Jesus responds quickly and doesn't perform a miracle on demand. In paraphrase, he says, "Come on people, you're being terrible, you've turned away from God. Your only sign will be the sign of the prophet Jonah."
