Jesus meets Nicodemus in John 3 on Trinity Sunday —video discussion

The Sunday lectionary gospel reading for Trinity Sunday in this Year B is the same as it was for Lent 2 in Year A: Nicodemus’ meeting with Jesus in John 3.1–17.

In Year A we were supposed to be reading from Matthew’s gospel, and the RCL used ecumenically has continued to do so, the lectionary in Common Worship offers us a sequence of four encounters between Jesus and individuals from the Fourth Gospel. In this Year B, the reading forms part of the regular departure from the shorter gospel according to Mark, so we are used to dipping into the Fourth Gospel at regular intervals.

Join James and Ian as they discuss this fascinating passage—and get quite excited by it!

  1. The contrast between Nicodemus and the woman:
    In both cases Jesus places Himself so that He can be found. To Nicodemus Jesus is in the dark and responds cryptically. To the woman He is more direct.
    This reminds me of the Laodicians; to them Jesus is a blank door making knocking sounds. To John, in the next chapter, Jesus is an open door and when he looks up he sees the heart of God and Jesus talking to him.
