Christ Had a Visit with Nicodemus

John 3:14-21


Moses raised a snake in the wilderness.

Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross.

The Israelites got out of Egypt.

Jesus Christ rose from the dead on Easter.


The death of Jesus Christ expressed God’s love.

We have the opportunity to respond.

To understand the divine, we need grace

And Baptism from the Holy Spirit.


Saint John Paul II wrote about salvation

Theology.  We have to suffer to

Obtain liberation from the devil.

This is the true meaning of salvation.


When a poster at a game read John three

Sixteen, it was not about Madden’s weight.
