Catholic “education” has become another crisis…. (more)

Joseph Farah explains why the Pharisee’s question has much deeper meaning
JOSEPH FARAH — I have always found the story of Nicodemus, told in three separate passages in the Gospel of John, among the most fascinating stories in the Bible. Like much of Scripture, there’s a lot more to it than meets the eye. Here was a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin whose very Greek name has two seemingly relevant meanings – – “Innocent Blood” and “Victory of the People.” With a name like that, Nicodemus might have been expected to be on the lookout for the Messiah who would restore the world to the way it was intended to be at Creation before the fall. Or maybe we read too much into some Bible names…. (more)
