John 3:1-8, 16-18 (NIV)
1 Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council.
2 He came to Jesus at night and said, "Rabbi, we know you are a teacher who has come from God. For no one could perform the miraculous signs you are doing if God were not with him."
3 In reply Jesus declared, "I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again."
4 "How can a man be born when he is old?” Nicodemus asked, “Surely he cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb to be born."
5 Jesus answered, "I tell you the truth, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless he is born of water and the Spirit".
6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit.
7 You should not be surprised at my saying, "You must be born again."
8 "The wind blows wherever it pleases. You hear its sound, but you cannot tell where it comes from or where it is going. So it is with everyone born of the Spirit."
9 "How can these things be?" asked Nicodemus.
10 "Are you a teacher of Israel and don't know these things?" Jesus replied
11 " I assure you: We speak what We know and We testify to what We have seen, but you do not accept Our testimony."
12 If I have told you about things that happen on earth and you don't believe, how will you believe if I tell you about things of heaven?
13 No one has ascended into heaven except the One who descended from heaven- the Son of Man.
14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,
15 so that everyone who believes in Him will have eternal life.
16 "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."
17 For God did not send his son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him.
18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son.
