John 3
New Living Translation
3There was a man named Nicodemus, a Jewish religious leader who was a Pharisee.G1161G2258G444G1537G5330G3686G846G3530G758G2453 2After dark one evening, he came to speak with Jesus. "Rabbi," he said, "we all know that God has sent you to teach us. Your miraculous signs are evidence that God is with you."G3778G2064G4314G2424G3571G2532G2036G846G4461G1492G3754G2064G1320G2064G575G2316G1063G3762G1410G4160G5023G4592G3739G4771G4160G3362G2316G5600G3326G846 3Jesus replied, "I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot see the Kingdom of God."G2424G611G2532G2036G846G281G281G3004G4671G3362G5100G1080G509G1410G3756G1492G932G2316 4"What do you mean?" exclaimed Nicodemus. "How can an old man go back into his mother's womb and be born again?"G3530G3004G4314G846G4459G1410G444G1080G5607G1088G3361G1410G1525G1208G1519G846G3384G2836G2532G1080 5Jesus replied, "I assure you, no one can enter the Kingdom of God without being born of water and the Spirit.G2424G611G281G281G3004G4671G3362G5100G1080G1537G5204G2532G4151G3756G1410G1525G1519G932G2316 6Humans can reproduce only human life, but the Holy Spirit gives birth to spiritual life.G1080G1537G4561G2076G4561G2532G1080G1537G4151G2076G4151 7So don't be surprised when I say, `You must be born again.'G2296G3361G3754G2036G4671G5209G1163G1080G509 8The wind blows wherever it wants. Just as you can hear the wind but can't tell where it comes from or where it is going, so you can't explain how people are born of the Spirit."G4151G4154G3699G2309G2532G191G5456G846G235G1492G3756G1492G4159G2064G2532G4226G5217G3779G2076G3956G1080G1537G4151 9"How are these things possible?" Nicodemus asked.G3530G611G2532G2036G846G4459G1410G5023G1096 10Jesus replied, "You are a respected Jewish teacher, and yet you don't understand these things?G2424G611G2532G2036G846G1488G4771G1320G2474G2532G1097G3756G5023 11I assure you, we tell you what we know and have seen, and yet you won't believe our testimony.G281G281G3004G4671G2980G3754G3739G1492G2532G3140G3739G3708G2532G2983G3756G2257G3141 12But if you don't believe me when I tell you about earthly things, how can you possibly believe if I tell you about heavenly things?G1487G2036G5213G1919G2532G4100G3756G4459G4100G1437G2036G5213G2032 13No one has ever gone to heaven and returned. But the Son of Man has come down from heaven.G2532G3762G305G1519G3772G1508G2597G1537G3772G5207G444G3588G5607G1722G3772 14And as Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,G2532G2531G3475G5312G3789G1722G2048G3779G1163G5207G444G5312 15so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life.G3363G3956G4100G1519G846G622G3363G622G235G2192G166G2222 16"For God loved the world so much that he gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life.G1063G2316G3779G25G2889G5620G1325G846G3439G5207G2443G3956G4100G1519G846G622G3361G622G235G2192G166G2222 17God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.G1063G2316G649G3756G846G5207G1519G2889G2443G2919G2889G235G2443G2889G1223G846G4982 18"There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God's one and only Son.G4100G1519G846G2919G3756G2919G1161G4100G3361G2919G2235G3754G4100G3361G4100G1519G3686G3439G5207G2316 19And the judgment is based on this fact: God's light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil.G1161G3778G2076G2920G3754G5457G2064G1519G2889G2532G444G25G4655G3123G2228G5457G1063G846G2041G2258G4190 20All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed.G1063G3956G4238G5337G3404G5457G2532G3756G2064G4314G5457G3363G846G2041G1651 21But those who do what is right come to the light so others can see that they are doing what God wants."G1161G4160G225G2064G4314G5457G2443G846G2041G5319G3754G2076G2038G1722G2316

John the Baptist Exalts Jesus

22Then Jesus and his disciples left Jerusalem and went into the Judean countryside. Jesus spent some time with them there, baptizing people.G3326G5023G2064G2424G2532G846G3101G1519G1093G2449G2532G1563G1304G3326G846G2532G907 23At this time John the Baptist was baptizing at Aenon, near Salim, because there was plenty of water there; and people kept coming to him for baptism.G1161G2491G2532G2258G907G1722G137G1451G4530G3754G2258G4183G5204G1563G2532G3854G2532G907 24(This was before John was thrown into prison.)G1063G2491G2258G3768G906G1519G5438 25A debate broke out between John's disciples and a certain Jew over ceremonial cleansing.G3767G1096G2214G3326G1537G2491G3101G2453G4012G2512 26So John's disciples came to him and said, "Rabbi, the man you met on the other side of the Jordan River, the one you identified as the Messiah, is also baptizing people. And everybody is going to him instead of coming to us."G2532G2064G4314G2491G2532G2036G846G4461G3739G2258G3326G4675G4008G2446G3739G4771G3140G2396G3778G907G2532G3956G2064G4314G846 27John replied, "No one can receive anything unless God gives it from heaven.G2491G611G2532G2036G444G1410G3756G2983G3762G3362G5600G1325G846G1537G3772 28You yourselves know how plainly I told you, `I am not the Messiah. I am only here to prepare the way for him.'G5210G846G3140G3427G3140G3754G2036G1473G1510G3756G5547G235G3754G1510G649G1715G1565 29It is the bridegroom who marries the bride, and the best man is simply glad to stand with him and hear his vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at his success.G2192G3565G2076G3566G1161G5384G3566G3588G2476G2532G191G846G5463G5479G1223G3566G5456G3778G1699G5479G3767G4137 30He must become greater and greater, and I must become less and less.G1565G1163G837G1161G1691G1642 31"He has come from above and is greater than anyone else. We are of the earth, and we speak of earthly things, but he has come from heaven and is greater than anyone else.G2064G509G2076G1883G3956G5607G1537G1093G2076G1537G1093G2532G2980G1537G1093G2064G1537G3772G2076G1883G3956 32He testifies about what he has seen and heard, but how few believe what he tells them!G2532G3739G3708G2532G191G5124G3140G2532G3762G2983G846G3141 33Anyone who accepts his testimony can affirm that God is true.G2983G846G3141G4972G3754G2316G2076G227 34For he is sent by God. He speaks God's words, for God gives him the Spirit without limit.G1063G3739G2316G649G2980G4487G2316G1063G2316G1325G3756G4151G1537G3358 35The Father loves his Son and has put everything into his hands.G3962G25G5207G2532G1325G3956G1722G846G5495 36And anyone who believes in God's Son has eternal life. Anyone who doesn't obey the Son will never experience eternal life but remains under God's angry judgment."G4100G1519G5207G2192G166G2222G1161G544G5207G3700G3756G3700G2222G235G3709G2316G3306G1909G846
