No sign but...

In follow-up to Thursday's post about the Gospel and Jesus' ministry, I recently read the following in Matthew 12:23, 38-40. If I understand this correctly, the only sign that Jesus offered them was that of his resurrection:

...And all the multitudes were amazed and said, "Could this be the Son of David?"

...Then some of the scribes and Pharisees answered, saying, “Teacher, we want to see a sign from You.”
But He answered and said to them, "An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and no sign will be given to it except the sign of the prophet Jonah. For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so will the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth..."
