Benjamin Luschen's comment on 2013-01-21 12:27:17:

Shalom! The sign of Jonah was the only sign given to the Jews, that Jesus was indeed the Messiah. This sign was asked for as a miracle. It symbolized the death, burial and resurrection of the Lord. To be reckoned by the Jews as dead He had to be in the heart of the earth 3 days and 3 nights. Jews embalmed after 3 days the body. When the women went Sunday morning Jesus was at least 3 full days dead. Because nights are mentioned He has to be 72 hours in the heart of the earth. His resurrection was the miracle and preached through the disciples, many believed, but the leaders did not repent, they spread a lie, that His disciples had stolen the body, in spite of a guard at the tomb. Nineveh repented as a nation, Israel missed it, and was destroyed in 70 AD.
