Leader of the People (ABP #10)

Nicodemus replied, ‘How can these things be?’ Jesus answered, ‘Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you don’t understand these things? – Slide 8


Though a leader of the people – yet blind was he

By customs and traditions benighted

And so it was at night he came

Was mere convenience or to avoid “shame?”
“You are a teacher – sent by God good –

For you do such things – no mere man could. . . .”


“Wait just a moment,” Jesus did say –

“To be born again, is the only way.”


“‘Born again?’ How can that be?

Return to the womb – when you’re as old as me?”


“How is it that you a leader of men,

Cannot my words – comprehend? 

Be born not by flesh – but in Spirit true

This is the thing that men must do.”


And so Nicodemus went away –

His life forever – was changed that day.


John 3: 1-21
