Journey Through Lent - Day 24

Journey Through Lent - Day 24

Daily Radio Bible Podcast

It appears Nicodemus has a question for Jesus in this late night encounter. So he comes right out and says, We all know that God has sent you to teach us. Well, what is the message from God? Is what he wants to know? What is it where to learn? What is got up to?

"For since by man came death, by man also came the resurrection from the dead. For as an Adam all die, even so in Christ, also be made alive."  And this from Romans chapter 5. "For as by one man's disobedience, many were made sinners. So also, by one man's obedience, many will be made righteous."

What it is that he's trying to teach. The Nicodemus is in the world, what he's trying to teach you and I, in this world, the good news that Christ has come to make us new
