We have sinned.
[Numbers 21:7]
************************
"Lord, this part is WEIRD."

[SMILE!]
"Read It to Me,
My beloved."

"Eh.....yeah;
here it is:

And as Moses
lifted up
the serpent
in the wilderness,
so must
the Son of man
be lifted up.
[John 3:14]

What's this ABOUT,
ANYWAY?"

[PATIENT SILENCE.]

"HUH?
(Squirm.)
And......how come Nicodemus
didn't try to SAVE HIM?"

"Save Who,
My beloved?"

"Eh.......You know:
(Squirm.)
Ya know.
(Fidgeting.)
Ya know."

[GENTLE SMILE.]
[PATIENTLY WAITING.]

"WELL?
I mean, if this guy was
really that high UP......
why didn't he try to
STOP them?"

"Who, child?"

(Impatient yell.)
"Ya KNOW!
Those......
PHARISEE guys!
(Frustrated squint.)
Didn't they say he was,
like: a RULER?"

"Who, child."

(Cranky squint!)
"That GUY!
THAT GUY!
NICODEMUS!
That... GUY!"

[GENTLE SMILE.]
"And, WHO would
he have saved?"

(Uncomfortable silence.)
"Eh.....Ya know."

[PATIENTLY WAITING.]

"Ya know."
(Nod toward to the wall.)
(Nod again.)
"Ya know."
(Glance uncomfortably
to ceiling.)
"Ya know."

[SOFT VOICE.]
"Who?"

(Uncomfortable shrug.)
"Ya know.
(Nod again toward the wall.)
(Mumble.)
Jesus."

"Ah.
I see."
[NOD.]
[SMILE.]
***********************
And the Lord
said to Moses,
Make a fiery serpent,
and set it on a pole,
and every who is bitten,
when he sees it,
shall live.
[Numbers 21:8]
