July 8th 2018. Truth encounters: Nicodemus. (John 3) The gospels give us stories of Jesus encountering all kinds of people. Jesus who comes ‘full of grace and truth’ (John 1:14) speaks truth into the lives of people he meets. The ultimate truth is that Jesus is ‘the only begotten son of God’. Perhaps the most famous verse in the Bible is in this chapter, John 3:16.
