b. Regeneration by the Divine Spirit in the Human Spirit
2 This one came to Him by night and said to Him, Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a 1teacher, for no one can do these asigns that You do unless bGod is with him.
3 Jesus answered and said to him, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless one is 1aborn anew, he cannot 2see the 3bkingdom of God.
4 Nicodemus said to Him, How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born, can he?
5 Jesus answered, Truly, truly, I say to you, Unless one is aborn 1of 2water and the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6 That which is aborn 1of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born 1of the 2Spirit is 2spirit.
7 Do not marvel that I said to you, 1You must be born anew.
8 The 1awind blows where it wills, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from and where it goes; so is everyone who is born 2of the Spirit.
9 Nicodemus answered and said to Him, How can these things be?
10 Jesus answered and said to him, You are a teacher of Israel, and you do not know these things?
11 Truly, truly, I say to you, We speak that which we know and atestify of that which we have seen, and yet you do not receive our testimony.
12 If I told you of the 1things on earth and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you of the 1things in heaven?
13 And ano one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended out of heaven, the bSon of Man, 1who is in heaven.
