Sunday 15 March

Read and reflect onĀ  John 3:14-21. What did you notice in this passage? Write this in your journal.

This passage is part of a conversation Jesus had with a Pharisee (a religious leader), called Nicodemus who was curious to find out more about the Kingdom of God. In the verses leading up to this, Jesus had told Nicodemus that in order to enter the Kingdom of God he must be ‘born again’. This confused Nicodemus as he didn’t realize Jesus was talking about a spiritual birth. In this reading Jesus explains that the key to being born again is to believe in the Son of God.
