comment How and why did Jesus weep?
@DanO'Day I should say I wouldn't take this approach with every book in the Bible. But with John I think it's warranted. It's not allegorical or sensus plenior. I would call it spiritual/symbolic. Clement of Alexandria in the second century said that the first three gospels presented the "bodily facts" while John wrote a "spiritual gospel". I've found that the early church recognized what John was doing and saying more than we do today.

Thank you @DanO'Day for the feedback. I do appreciate it. In fact I appreciate it more than an upvote. God bless.

comment What does “born again” from John 3:3 mean?
Why indeed? We all know the feeling. Sorry about that. Hopefully they'll come back and explain their reasoning.
