If I have
told you
earthly things
and you do not
believe,
how can you
believe
if I tell you
heavenly things?
[John 3:12]
*****************
"I don't see what
everybody sees in You,
Lord."

[SMILE.]
"Tell Me, child."

"Huh?
Oh, well; I don't get
it. I mean, nobody's
ever SEEN You!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"Some have, My child."

"Nuh, UH!"

[MORE PATIENT NODDING.]
"Yes, My beloved."

"Uh, UH!"

"Hm, hm."

"NO!
I said: NO!"

[CHUCKLE.]

"Uh, UH!
Even JESUS said
You were in the WIND!"

[PATIENT SIGH.]
"Read It to Me,
child."

"I don't know, Lord!
It's, Ya know:
SOMEWHERE in there!"

"Where, My beloved."

(Kvetchy frown.)
"Ya mean, NOW?
I don't feel like lookin'
up stuff, right now.
But, I know He said
it: somethin' about
bein' in the WIND."

"Show Me."

"Here it is, Lord.
It's that part where
He's talkin' to that
Jewish guy."

[BURST OUT LAUGHING!]
"Which one,
My beloved?"

"Wha'd Ya MEAN?
THIS one!
RIGHT here:

Now there was a man
of the Pharisees,
name Nicodemus,
a ruler of the Jews.
This man came to Jesus
by night,
and said to Him,
Rabbi......
[John 3:1-2]

THAT one!"

[NOD.]
"And, what does
he want to know,
My child?"

"Eh.....I dunno;
....Hey, LORD?
I didn't know Jesus
was a RABBI? That's
WEIRD!"

[LAUGH!]
"Why, My beloved?"

"Well......did He even
get BAR MITZVAH'd?"

"It is a Mystery,
My child."

"Well; I thought
He was just a
CARPENTER, Lord!
WHEN did He
have the time to go
to RABINICAL school?
THAT's weird!"

"He didn't,
My beloved."

(Squint.)
"Then, why did everybody
call Him RABBI?"

"Because I said so,
My child."

"Yeah.
I guess that's good
enough for me.
(Squint.)
(Frown.)
Did He wear a YARMULKE?"

[LAUGH!]

"I don't think so, Lord.
I don't think those
things were invented,
till..... like,
the Jews went to EUROPE.
Yeah, I don't think
Yarmulkes had been
invented yet, in Your day."

[PATIENT NOD.]

"Anyway: He DID say
You were just a Spirit,
Lord. It's right HERE!"

"Where, child."

"Right HERE!
SEE?
(Impatiently point.)
HERE!"

[PATIENT NOD.]
"What do you think
I AM, child?"

"INVISIBLE?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"You ARE, LORD!
You ARE!"

[PATIENT SIGH.]

"Well, let's FACE it!
You're INVISIBLE!
THAT'S it!"

"What's it,
Mein kinder?"

"YOU!
You're just INVISIBLE!
And, I don't know
what I'm sa'pposed to
DO with You!"

"Love Me, child.
[GENTLE VOICE.]
Just love Me."
***********************
Do not marvel
that I said to you,
You must be born
anew.
The wind
blows
where it wills,
and you
hear the sound
of it,
but you do not
know
whence it comes
or
whither
it goes.
[John 3:7-8]

___________________________
(Author's note: A 'Yarmulke'
is pronounced: 'YA-MEH-KAH'.
It's that little skull cap
that Jewish men (and women)
wear to synagogue. It's
meant to cover the head,
in humbling before God.)
