Prayer of the Day
Second Week of EasterApril 13th, 2015
The terminology of the whole Gospel passage calls to mind the Christian Baptism, the Sacrament of Initiation. Nicodemus, like many adult candidates for Baptism approaches Jesus with some knowledge and experience. He at first recognises Jesus as a God-sent teacher known for the miracles He performs. As a Pharisee he views heaven as something to be earned through faithful observance of the law and traditions.
