“Unless one is born of water and Spirit he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.” This week in our gospel readings we’ll hear from the encounter between Nicodemus and Jesus. Nicodemus comes to Jesus “by night.” (Nothing good happens at night in John’s Gospel.) Jesus tells Nicodemus that he must be “born from above,” or “again,” as it is sometimes translated. Nicodemus misunderstands. he thinks Jesus is talking about a natural birth (Nicodemus is too old). Jesus means spiritual rebirth. This rebirth can happen at any time. It’s never too late.
