Notes from the Journey with the Disciples – 28

28. Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God (John 3:2).

The Pharisee gets it. Though it appears that this conversation occurs in the early moments of Jesus’ ministry, Nicodemus has already seen enough to believe that Jesus comes from God. He is a prophet, for sure. The ensuing conversation is Nicodemus’ effort to determine if more is possible. But the point is that Nicodemus doesn’t let jealousy or other wrong motives block his view of what is obvious–Jesus comes from God. His friends won’t be as wise. They will let their dislike for Jesus color their view until some even believe He has come from Satan. Truth is, when our emotions get the best of us, our judgment seldom improves.
