John 3:13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven–the Son of Man.14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,

Interesting reference Jesus’ uses here, let’s investigate:

Numbers 21:8-9 The people were bitten by flying fiery serpents. There was no cure for the bite. Moses was directed to make an image of the serpent, and place it in sight of the people, that they might look on it and be healed.

So this reference, is a reference to physical healing based on an object. Which matches Jesus’ ministry of healing all PHYSICALLY and SPIRITUALLY that look and believe.

I love this.
