  1. Now there was a man, a Pharisee, named Nicodemus, a member of the Jewish ruling council,
  2. He came to Jesus at night and said to him,
    • “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God.
    • For no one could perform the signs that you do unless God is with him.”
  3. Jesus replied,
    • “Truly, truly I tell you, unless a person is born from above,
    • they cannot see the kingdom of God.”
  4. Nicodemus said to him,
    • “How can a man be born when he is old?
    • Surely he can’t enter his mother’s womb a second time and be born?”
  5. Jesus replied,
    • “Truly, truly I tell you, unless a person is born of water and Spirit,
    • they cannot enter the kingdom of God.
  6.   What is born of the flesh is flesh,
    • and what is born of the Spirit is spirit.
  7.   Do not be amazed that I said to you,
    • ‘You must all be born from above.’
  8.   The wind blows wherever it wishes, and you hear its sound,
    • but do not know where it comes from or where it goes.
    • So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
  9. Nicodemus replied, “How can these things be?”
  10. Jesus replied,
    “Are you the teacher of Israel
    • and yet you don’t understand these things?
  11. Truly, truly I tell you, we speak about what we know and testify about what we have seen,
    • but you people do not receive our testimony.
  12. If I have told you people about earthly things and you don’t believe,
    • how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things?
  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 serpent in the wilderness,
    • so must the Son of Man be lifted up,
  15. so that everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.”
  16. For this how much God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son,
    • so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.
