Why do Jesus`s enemies keep demanding a sign? Why doesn`t Jesus do a miracle for them?
Because they are too blinded to undersatnd. Blinded by their pride and lack maybe unwillingnessto believe. They should have learnt one vital lesson already: you shall not tempt the Lord. It`s an abridgement of the second Commandment. You are far from honoring Him, if you place yousrelf above Him negotiating with Him.

Jesus`s enemies are people that do not work for God they want to do things their ways. Jesus does miracles for people that love him and obey him. He doesn`t do miracles for the people that are against him.

Because they do not believe that He is Lord of Lords. He only does mircles for those who believes.

Why do Jesus`s enemies keep demanding a sign? Why doesn`t Jesus do a miracle for them?
Jesus` enemies demanded a sign to test Jesus and to defeat Jesus` ministry. For any man to test Jesus is to judge Jesus. The scheme to test by a sign of coming weather is not a heavenly sign in the coming kingdom of Christ. Jesus did not perform miracles for the enemies because they lacked faith in testimony.

Matthew`s Biography of Jesus - The Demand for a Sign
The evenings and mornings tell us how the energy of that day may be displaced by the weather of the day. If you know the way the sky is going to be, you can`t get yourself ready for the times. Being evil and adulterous will leave you searching for a sign that doesn`t exist. Only Jonah`s sign will lead the good souls away!!! Amen

i believe it was a way to catch him doing something wrong. they didnt believe he was the messiah but some sort of prophet or magician. Jesus knew what they were up, and he knew that the name of God cannot be mocked

Jesus perfomed miracles for a number of reasons, compassion for the sick or the multitude, a lesson for his disciples and of course the number one reason was to glorify God so He was a Holy Man of God not a street prefromer to conjure up some sign for a nonbeliever.

Because they have no faith in him.. they do not believe that he is or Savior. Jesus didn`t do a miracle for them becuase he wants them to believe and have faith without having to see proof..

The enemies of Jesus keep demanding a sign since they were testing him to see if he is he is real and Jesus did not do it since he knows the kind of people he was with and what their plans are against so they have all the powers to fight against him that he does not succeed in doing that so that he will be prosecuted. And it is a lesson to our ministers that not everywhere, anytime there has to be a miracle when it`s time is due it will surely happen. since not all in your life likes and loves you.

The Demand for a Sign

The Pharisees and Sadducees came, and testing him, asked him to show them a sign from heaven. But he answered them, "When it is evening, you say, 'It will be fair weather, for the sky is red.' In the morning, 'It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.' Hypocrites! You know how to discern the appearance of the sky, but you can't discern the signs of the times! An evil and adulterous generation seeks after a sign, and there will be no sign given to it, except the sign of the prophet Jonah."
He left them, and departed.

Matthew 16:1-4
