Re-Defining Moment
1. Earthly birth must be followed by a spiritual birth
2. The Spirit has been promised to Israel
3. The Spirit is the sign of the new covenant
6
Clandestine Meeting
John 3:1–2 Now there was a man of the
Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews.
This man came to Jesus by night and said to him,
“Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come
from God, for no one can do these signs that you
do unless God is with him.”
John 3:1-2 7
Amen, Amen
Truly, truly, I say to you, unless
one is born again he cannot see
the kingdom of God.
John 3:3 8
Born Again
1. Physically born a second time
2. Born from above
9
Nicodemus said to him,
How can a man be born when he is old? Can he
enter a second time into his mother’s womb and
be born?”
10
Jesus answered
I say to you, unless one is born of water
and the Spirit, he cannot enter the
kingdom of God. That which is born of the
John 3:5–7 11
Jesus answered
flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the
Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to
you, ‘You must be born again.’
John 3:5–7 12
A reference
I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be
clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all
your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a
new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you.
And I will remove the heart of stone from your
flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put
my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my
statutes and be careful to obey my rules.
Ezekiel 36:25–27 13
Water & Spirit
Water- Israel through the Red Sea
Water- Baptism of repentance
Spirit- Belief Jesus is the Messiah
14
Flesh & Spirit
Flesh- natural
Flesh- the works of the Law
Spirit- New Covenant
15
Don’t Marvel
The Law bought you this far
The Spirit takes you the rest of the way
16
Spirit & Wind
The wind blows where it wishes, and you
hear its sound, but you do not know where
it comes from or where it goes. So it is
with everyone who is born of the Spirit.
John 3:8 17
Valley of Dry Bones Ezekiel 37
There is a play on the Hebrew word (ruach) and the Greek
word (pneuma) which means both “wind” and “spirit.” The
point is that the wind has freedom, as does the Spirit. One
cannot see the wind, but rather its effects; so, too the
Spirit. Man’s salvation is not in his control, but is in the
Spirit’s control. Salvation is a combination of the initiation
of the Spirit and the faith/repentance response of man.
John’s Gospel uniquely focuses on the person and work of
the Spirit He sees the new age of righteousness as the age
of the Spirit of God.
18
Nicodemus said to him
How can these
things be?
John 3:9 19
Pitfalls of the Gospel
Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what
we know, and bear witness to what we
have seen, but you do not receive our
John 3:11–12 20
Pitfalls of the Gospel
testimony. If I have told you earthly things
and you do not believe, how can you
believe if I tell you heavenly things?
John 3:11–12 21
The Father and Son
Receiving them is a choice
Negative (John 1:11; 3:32)
Positive (John 1:12; 3:33)
22
Declaration of Divinity
No one has ascended into heaven
except he who descended from
heaven, the Son of Man.
John 3:13 23
Context is Everything
Son of Man
Mortal man
Prophet
Divine figure
24
The Cure for the snake bite
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in
the wilderness, so must the Son of
Man be lifted up, that whoever
believes in him may have eternal life.
John 3:14–15 25
Foretells his death
Numbers 21 People sinned snakes sent as
judgement, God instruct Moses to construct a
bronze snake and put it on a pole.
People sin, the snake is loose, Jesus’ death on a
cross would cure the death of sin. Look to Jesus.
Choose life
26
God’s Agent Jesus
For God so loved the world, that
he gave his only Son, that whoever
believes in him should not perish
but have eternal life.
John 3:16–17 27
God’s Agent Jesus
For God did not send his Son into
the world to condemn the world,
but in order that the world might
be saved through him.
John 3:16–17 28
A Love Story
1. Sending
2. Anyone
3. Reward
4. No judgement
5. Salvation
29
Only Begotten Son
Unique or One of a kind
30
Believing or not believing
Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but
whoever does not believe is condemned
already, because he has not believed in the
name of the only Son of God.
John 3:18 31
Ezekiel 18:23 Have I any pleasure in the
death of the wicked, declares the Lord GOD,
and not rather that he should turn from his
way and live?
1 Timothy 2:4 [God] who desires all people
to be saved and to come to the knowledge
of the truth.
32
Like refusing a pardon
The sinful condition
And this is the judgment: the light has
come into the world, and people loved
the darkness rather than the light
because their works were evil.
John 3:19–20 33
The sinful condition
For everyone who does wicked things
hates the light and does not come to
the light, lest his works should be
exposed.
John 3:19–20 34
High Lighted
Repentance
35
Comparison
But whoever does what is true
comes to the light, so that it may
be clearly seen that his works have
been carried out in God.
John 3:21 36
What is truth?
Coming to the Light
Believing in Jesus
Transformative
37
Our Take-Away
1. You must be born again
2. WWJD? Plant a seed!
3. Invite the Holy Spirit to shine a light on you.

  • 7. Clandestine Meeting John 3:1–2 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” John 3:1-2 7
  • 8. Amen, Amen Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God. John 3:3 8

Salvation is a combination of the initiation of the Spirit and the faith/repentance response of man. John’s Gospel uniquely focuses on the person and work of the Spirit He sees the new age of righteousness as the age of the Spirit of God. 18

  1. John 3:1-21
  2. John 3:3 (NASB95) 3 Jesus answered and said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
  3. Tim Tebow story Jr in college Phil 4:13 first. Local Newspaper wrote. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Alabama championship game- Change the verse. National Championship, J316. Christian belief in a nutshell. Coach-Can’t change verse. They played they won. 94 million Googled J316.
  4. Familiar to some
  5. John 3 Exodus Passover Passover Night Night Born from above Born through the water Enter the Kingdom Enter the Land The Spirit/Wind Wind divides sea Prophet like Moses Moses the Prophet Jesus lifted up Serpent lifted up
  6. Earthly birth must be followed by a spiritual birth The Spirit has been promised to Israel The Spirit is the sign of the new covenant
  7. John 3:1–2 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” Committed to the Law as defined by oral tradition Member of the Sanhedrin Represents orthodox Judaism Admits the divine call- you might be the one Moses referred to in Deut 18:15, 18 Points to signs
  8. John 3:3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” Truth Bomb emphasizes what is said. A confirmation of what is said is true
  9. Double entendre/ two meanings Physically born a second time (emphasizing Jewishness) Born from above Emphasizing spiritual birth Represents a starting over The restoration of a restored kingdom was promised. Kingdom where the Messiah reigns
  10. John 3:4 How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?” Good Rabis ask good questions. Getting clarification
  11. John 3:5–7 I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God. That which is born of the
  12. flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not marvel that I said to you, ‘You must be born again.’
  13. Three births- flesh, water, Spirit. A ceremonial sprinkling by the Spirit of God Ezekiel 36:25–27 I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean from all your uncleannesses, and from all your idols I will cleanse you. And I will give you a new heart, and a new spirit I will put within you. And I will remove the heart of stone from your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. And I will put my Spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes and be careful to obey my rules. Jesus likened to a ceremonial washing Hebrews 10:22 let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.
  14. Water- Israel through the Red Sea Water- Baptism of repentance Spirit- Belief Jesus is the Messiah
  15. Flesh is natural Flesh is the works of the Law Spirit New Covenant
  16. Ezekiel’s prophecy- put my Spirit within you The Law bought you this far The Spirit takes you the rest of the way
  17. John 3:8 The wind blows where it wishes, and you hear its sound, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
  18. There is a play on the Hebrew word (ruach) and the Greek word (pneuma) which means both “wind” and “spirit.” The point is that the wind has freedom, as does the Spirit. One cannot see the wind, but rather its effects; so, too the Spirit. Man’s salvation is not in his control, but is in the Spirit’s control. Salvation is a combination of the initiation of the Spirit and the faith/repentance response of man. John’s Gospel uniquely focuses on the person and work of the Spirit He sees the new age of righteousness as the age of the Spirit of God.
  19. John 3:9 Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” John 3:10 Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? Spiritually apprised
  20. Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive our
  21. testimony. If I have told you earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you heavenly things? Jesus is revealing himself to Nicodemus, but his mind is stuck on the earthly.
  22. Receiving them is a choice-Jesus plants a seed Negative John 1:11 (ESV) 11 He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. John 3:32 (ESV) 32 He bears witness to what he has seen and heard, yet no one receives his testimony. Positive John 1:12 (ESV) 12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, John 3:33 (ESV) 33 Whoever receives his testimony sets his seal to this, that God is true. CHOICES
  23. John 3:13 No one has ascended into heaven except he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man.
  24. Son of Man Mortal man- most common OT usage Psalm 8:4 (ESV) 4 what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Prophet Ezekiel 2:1 (ESV) 1 And he said to me, “Son of man, stand on your feet, and I will speak with you.” Divine figure Daniel 7:13–14 (ESV) 13 “I saw in the night visions, and behold, with the clouds of heaven there came one like a son of man, and he came to the Ancient of Days and was presented before him. 14 And to him was given dominion and glory and a kingdom, that all peoples, nations, and languages should serve him; his dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and his kingdom one that shall not be destroyed. Jesus’ signed his death warrant with this statement Matthew 26:64 (ESV) 64 Jesus said to him, “You have said so. But I tell you, from now on you will see the Son of Man seated at the right hand of Power and coming on the clouds of heaven.”
  25. John 3:14–15 And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that whoever believes in him may have eternal life.
  26. Numbers 21 People sinned snakes sent as judgement, God instruct Moses to construct a bronze snake and put it on a pole. People sin, the snake is loose, Jesus’ death on a cross would cure the death of sin. Look to Jesus. Choose life
  27. John 3:16–17 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
  28. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
  29. 1. God sends Jesus. covenant loyalty and love. Loved in such as manner 2. For anyone who believes- not just the Jews- Ongoing trust (tense) John 1:12 But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God, 3. Rewarded with eternal live- Eternal life in Greek doesn’t mean quantity but quality 2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance. 4. This time is not for judgement- Think the book of Daniel 5. To bring salvation to all
  30. Unique or One of a kind Not in a sexual sense or that there are no other children. There are none like Jesus. John 1:14 And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
  31. John 3:18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. Snake analogy. Not looking to the bronze serpent. Poison is already in and will lead to death. J316 is not an invitation to a party. There are consequences for unbelief
  32. Ezekiel 18:23 Have I any pleasure in the death of the wicked, declares the Lord GOD, and not rather that he should turn from his way and live? 1 Timothy 2:4 [God] who desires all people to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.
  33. John 3:19–20 -And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For
  34. everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed.
  35. Repentance Light shows dust. Pull open the blinds. See the dirt. Jesus exposes are sinful nature. Receiving is repenting and believing
  36. John 3:21 But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.
  37. Coming to the Light Believing in Jesus Transformative
  38. You must be born again You must be born again WWJD? Plant a seed! Invite the Holy Spirit to shine a light on you.
  39. Prayer
