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.”
3
Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”

John 3:4-7
4
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?”
5
Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6
That which is born of the 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.’

Jesus said to Nicodemus, an old man who was a religious teacher of the Jews, that everyone must be born again to enter the Kingdom of God!

John 1:9-10
9
The true light, which gives light to everyone, was coming into the world.
10
He was in the world, and the world was made through him, yet the world did not know him.

John 1:11-13
11
He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
12
But to all who did receive him, who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God,
13
who were born, not of blood nor of the will of the flesh nor of the will of man, but of God.

For all who are led by the Spirit of God are sons of God.
15
For you did not receive the spirit of slavery to fall back into fear, but you have received the Spirit of adoption as sons, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!”

Romans 8:16-17
16
The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God,
17
and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.
