John 3:1-15 - Born Again and Born from Above
Encountering the Holy Spirit
The season of Pentecost is the season that focuses on the Holy Spirit of God coming into our lives and shaping the world for the better through us. Beginning with the Day of Pentecost, when the Holy Spirit filled the fearful disciples with courageous fire to share the good news of Jesus, we will examine many ways that the Spirit affects and empowers our lives until this day.
Nicodemus, a teacher of the law, came to Jesus during the night to ask him questions. Jesus tried in multiple ways to explain to Nicodemus that a person must be “born from above” and/or “born again.” Nicodemus was confused by the message that Jesus tried to convey. This Brief Bible Dive will tackle the original Greek word that is used both for “from above” and “again” as well as give light to confusion surrounding this episode.
