John 3 starts with a Pharisee coming to Jesus for a little theological discussion. He was likely unaware that he would get a bit more of a theological education.
He speaks of what he knows, what he can see.
We’re constantly bringing our preconceived notions of Jesus to him. “I know who you are, I know all about you, Jesus!” The actuality is that it is Jesus who knows all about us. Like Nicodemus, we’re far too concerned with what we bring to the table. If we’re gonna call him ‘teacher’ we will have to let him teach us.
Teacher, we know who you are We know where you came No one can do what you've done Outside of The Name Let me tell you something true You want Kingdom come But you'll need to shed that skin Start all over again Water and Spirit Breath and Wind You'll need to shed that skin Start all over again How can that be? Shed my skin, Start again? Surely you can't mean me You called me teacher So let me teach The Wind blows Where the Spirit goes To anyone To everyone Who seems out of reach
