Christ teacheth Nicodemus the necessity of regeneration.
John 3:1 There was however, a man from among the Pharisees, Nicodemus, his name,ruler of the Jews. John 3:2 The same, came unto him, by night, and said unto himRabbi! we know that, from God, thou hast come, a teacher; for, no one, can be doing, these signs, which, thou, art doing, except, God, be with him. John 3:3 Jesus answered, and said unto himVerily, verily, I say unto thee: Except one be born from above, he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:4 Nicodemus saith unto himHow, can a man be born, when he is, old? Can he, into the womb of his mother, a second time, enter, and be born? John 3:5 Jesus answeredVerily, verily, I say unto thee: Except one be born of water and spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God. John 3:6 That which hath been born of the flesh, is, flesh, and, that which hath been born of the spirit, is, spirit. John 3:7 Do not marvel, that I said unto thee: Ye must needs be born from above. John 3:8 The spirit, where it pleaseth, doth breathe, and, the sound thereof, thou hearest; but knowest not, whence it cometh and whither it goeth: Thus, is every one who hath been born of the spirit. John 3:9 Nicodemus answered, and said unto himHow, can these things, come about? John 3:10 Jesus answered, and said unto himArt, thou, the teacher of Israel, and, these things, knowest not? John 3:11 Verily, verily, I say unto thee: What we know, we speak, and, of what we have seen, we bear witness, and, our witness, ye receive not. John 3:12 If, the earthly things, I told you, and ye believe not, How, if I should tell you the heavenly things, will ye believe? John 3:13 And, no one, hath ascended into heaven, save he that, out of heaven, descended,The Son of Man.
Of faith in his death.
John 3:14 And, just as, Moses, lifted up the serpent in the desert, so, must, the Son of Man, be lifted up, John 3:15 That, whosoever believeth in him, may have life age-abiding.
The great love of God towards the world.
John 3:16 For God, so loved, the world, that, his Only Begotten Son, he gave,that, whosoever believeth on him, might not perish, but have life age-abiding. John 3:17 For God, sent not, his Son into the world, that he might judge the world, but, that the world might be saved through him.
Condemnation for unbelief.
John 3:18 He that believeth on him, is not to be judged: he that believeth not, already, hath been judged,because he hath not believed on the name of the Only Begotten Son of God. John 3:19 And, this, is the judgment: That, the light, hath come into the world,and men loved, rather the darkness than the light, for, wicked, were their, works. John 3:20 For, whosoever doth practise corrupt things, hateth the light, and cometh not unto the light, lest his works should be reproved; John 3:21 But, he that doeth the truth, cometh unto the light, that his works may be, made manifest, that, in God, have they been wrought.
John 3:22 After these things, came Jesus, and his disciples, into the Judaean land; and, there, was he tarrying with them, and immersing.
The baptism, witness, and doctrine of John concerning Christ.
John 3:23 And John also was immersing in Aenon, near to him, because, many waters, were there; and they were coming, and being immersed; John 3:24 for, not yet, had John been cast into prison.
John 3:25 There arose, therefore, a questioning, from among the disciples of John, with a Jew,concerning purification. John 3:26 And they came unto John, and said unto himRabbi! he who was with thee beyond the Jordan, unto whom, thou, hast borne witness, see! the same, is immersing; and, all, are coming unto him. John 3:27 John answered, and saidA man can receive, nothing, except it have been given him out of heaven. John 3:28 Ye yourselves, unto me, bear witness, that, I, saidI, am not the Christ; butI am sent before, That One. John 3:29 He that hath the bride, is, bridegroom; but, the friend of the bridegroom, who standeth by and hearkeneth unto him, greatly, rejoiceth, by reason of the voice of the bridegroom. This, my joy, therefore, is fulfilled. John 3:30 That One, it behoveth to increase,but, me, to decrease. John 3:31 He that, from above, doth come, over all, is: he that is of the earth, of the earth, is, and, of the earth, doth speak: he that, out of heaven, doth come, over all, is, John 3:32 What he hath seen and heard, of, the same, he beareth witness,and, his witness, no one, receiveth: John 3:33 He that hath received his witness, hath set sealthat, God, is, true. John 3:34 For, he whom God hath sent, the sayings of God, doth speak; for, not by measure, giveth he the Spirit. John 3:35 The Father, loveth the Son, and, all things, hath given into his hand. John 3:36 He that believeth on the Son, hath life age-abiding: whereas, he that yieldeth not unto the Son, shall not see life,but, the anger of God, awaiteth him.
