Feel the searching, the silence, and the secrecy that fills the night air as Nicodemus meets alone with Jesus. Take your place of quiet and listen to the dialogue of the two. This Pharisee probes at the mystery of Jesus; the Lord responds with new, divine turns of meaning. We are to be born from what flows from above; the saving blood of the Savior will seep into the soul of the searcher, giving life-beyond-death.
The bronze serpent of Moses lifted on high was the sight from above that prevented those bitten by the serpents from being killed. Lift your head high to the cross and there find new life saving you from all the deadly bites of the evil one. Find eternal comfort in verse 16, which expresses all of salvation and the entire Gospel at one glance.
