<< John 3 >> King James Translators’ Notes

1 There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews:

2 The same came to Jesus by night, and said unto him, Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come from God: for no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with him.

3 Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.  again: or, from above

4 Nicodemus saith unto him, How can a man be born when he is old? can he enter the second time into his mother’s womb, and be born?

5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

Here Jesus was speaking of the water that comes from a mother when womb breaks.   Jesus was talking about natural birth and not baptism.  Paul opposed this teaching and was not enlightened on it.  I would rather side with Jesus than with Paul. – Jose Maria Chavira ( Adagio I )*-

6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.

7 Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born again.Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.
