Nicodemus

This week’s readings return once again to the nocturnal meeting between Jesus and Nicodemus, so let’s have another look at this Tanner image and listen once more to the song by David Crowder.

Arguably the most popular verse in the Bible is John 3:16, which is included in today’s Gospel reading.

Nicodemus, Henry O. Tanner, 1899, oil on canvas 85.6 x 100.3 cm., Pennsylvania  Academy of the Fine Arts. Nicodemus, Henry O. Tanner, 1899, oil on canvas 85.6 x 100.3 cm., Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia.

Jesus said to Nicodemus:
“Just as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert,
so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”

    I missed this post the first time around so I am glad you re-posted it. Once again, I love how you analyze the art in relation to the reading, and bring it home with the important question for us to consider. And I have to say that I love your musical selection. That is the first time I heard that song.
