Lent 4: John 3:14-21 and Ephesians 2:1-10 (Year B)

I offer three posts for the RCL readings for this Sunday:

John 3:1-21
Little tidbit:
ο διδασκαλος ("the teacher", vs 2)  Nicodemus calls Jesus "a" teacher; Jesus calls Nicodemus "THE teacher."  Obviously Jesus is catching Nicodemus in his words!
A laser focus on John 3:16
A little tidbit
εχη :  STOP.  read carefully: This is a present tense verb.  This means that we HAVE the eternal life, not we will have, but we HAVE the eternal life.  In John's Gospel life begins here and in as we, through faith, live in the son.

For those who want to work with the lovely Ephesians passage:
