John 3:3-4 (When Life Begins)

Jesus replied, “I tell you the truth, unless you are born again,[a] you cannot see the Kingdom of God.” “What do you mean?” exclaimed Nicodemus. “How can an old man go back into his mother’s womb and be born again?” (John 3:3-4) Read: Judges 17:1 – 18:31, John 3:1-21, Psalm 104:1-23, Proverbs 14:20-21 Relate: I…
