Jesus’ teaching about the new birth is all about new life! Nicodemus in John 3 addressed Jesus as a rabbi and teacher; Jesus responded to him as the one who announced and gave new life. Reflect on our Lord’ saying to Nicodemus, the new birth is not about learning, but it is the life that is wanted for in the Messiah’s Kingdom; and life must begin by birth. Jesus answered, “Most assuredly, 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 flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit…” (John 3:5-8). That’s it!!!
