Gospel text (Jn 3:13-17): Jesus said to Nicodemus: “No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man. And 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.” Jesus said to Nicodemus: “No one has gone up to heaven except the one who has come down from heaven, the Son of Man. And 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.” For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

Today we see Nicodemus talking with Jesus again. A “high-level” conversation. And what are they talking about at such a high level? That Jesus has descended from heaven to climb the Cross. That is amazing, unimaginable!

-Maybe you think that, after all, it is not a big deal... But it actually is the other way round: there is a lot to consider! Your eternal life is at stake, no more and no less.
