John 3:1-21 | Duane Brooks |
The photo gallery in the Gospel of John is worth seeing. John shows us vignettes of the lives of real people who encountered Jesus. Are they Jesus’ friends or Jesus’ foes? One of the persons we only meet in John is a man named Nicodemus who came to Jesus with compliments. John shows us Nicodemus’s struggle to publicly declare his faith in Jesus. Only as he came to know Jesus did he truly come to know himself. Nicodemus is not alone. Who knows that we know Christ?
