Luke 11:32 The men of Nineveh will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and behold, something greater than Jonah is here.
The men of Nineveh repented just because Jonah, a man and a prophet, went and proclaimed the need to repent. When Jesus startd His ministry what did he say? "Repent for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Matthew 4:17). But the people of His day didn't repent - instead they stood around arguing about the colour of His socks.
As Jesus is greater than John the Baptist, so He is also greater than the prophet Jonah (or any of the other prophets). We nee dot acknowledge Him and repent!
