Faith, Idolatry, and the Bronze Serpent

Jesus, in his dialogue with Nicodemus, reveals the purpose of this particular incident in the Israelites’ history as a preface to arguably the most well-known verse in all of Scripture: “Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him” (John 3:14-15). Join Pastor Dave Leandre as he explores the sinfulness of man’s idol-making heart, and the salvation that comes by faith in the one who became a curse for us.
