ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's perspective on the importance of forming patterns as well as seeing deeply within the layers of existence in every faith. The author cites several incidents such as the story of Nicodemus, a Pharisee, and his encounter with Jesus Christ and the story of the Samaritan woman at the well. A study of religion which calls for an enhanced literary sensitivity by which to differentiate between the literal and the allegorical is presented.
