Passage: John 3:1-8 (RSV)

John 3

1Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicode'mus, a ruler of the Jews.
2This 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."
3Jesus answered him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born anew, he cannot see the kingdom of God."
4Nicode'mus 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?"
5Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
6That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7Do not marvel that I said to you, `You must be born anew.'
8The wind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know whence it comes or whither it goes; so it is with every one who is born of the Spirit."
