Jn 3:1 -9
Main point summary
It's utterly impossible for the natural man to enter the Kingdom of God. He must be born twice to enter the kingdom.
Jn 3:1 -9
John 3:1-10
Not entirely sure if the ground relationship is the correct relationship. vv.5b-c is saying that the kingdom of God is only accessible by water and spiritual birth, and vv.6a-b gives the reason why only the spiritually born enter the Kingdom, namely, because the ones born of the flesh don't have the Spirit. I think vv.7 reads Therefore, do not marvel that I said to you.
Nicodemus didn't ask a question, and Jesus' response is unexpected.
Why would Jesus answer in this way? It might have to do with Nicodemus' statement: You are a teacher come from God because you did many sings and with Jesus' response in Jn 2:23 -25.
Key words: Born, Kingdom of God, flesh, Spirit, born again
Now there was a man of the Pharisees named h Nicodemus,
Había un hombre de los fariseos, llamado Nicodemo a ,
i a ruler of the Jews.
prominente 1 b entre los judíos.
This man came to Jesus 1 j by night and said to him,
Este vino a Jesús 1 de noche y le dijo:
k “Rabbi, l we know that you are a teacher come from God,
Rabí a , sabemos que has venido de Dios como maestro,
for no one can do these signs that you do
porque nadie puede hacer las señales 2 b que tú haces
m unless God is with him.”
si Dios no está con él c .
Jesus answered him,
Respondió Jesús y le dijo:
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is n born o again 1
En verdad, en verdad te digo que el que no nace de nuevo 1 a
he cannot p see the kingdom of God.”
no puede ver el reino de Dios b .
Nicodemus said to him,
Nicodemo le dijo * :
“How can a man be born when he is old?
¿Cómo puede un hombre nacer siendo ya viejo?
Can he enter a second time into his mother’s womb and be born?”
¿Acaso puede entrar por segunda vez en el vientre de su madre y nacer?
Jesus answered,
Jesús respondió:
“Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born q of water and the Spirit,
En verdad, en verdad te digo que el que no nace de agua y del Espíritu a
he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
no puede entrar en el reino de Dios b .
r That which is born of the flesh is s flesh,
Lo que es nacido de la carne, carne es a ,
and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. 1
y lo que es nacido del Espíritu, espíritu es.
t Do not marvel that I said to you,
No te asombres de que te haya dicho:
‘You 1 must be born u again.’
“Os es necesario nacer de nuevo 1 .”
v The wind 1 blows w where it wishes,
El viento sopla donde quiere,
and you hear its sound,
y oyes su sonido,
but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes.
pero no sabes de dónde viene ni adónde va a ;
So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
así es todo aquel que es nacido del Espíritu.
Nicodemus said to him, x “How can these things be?”
Respondió Nicodemo y le dijo: ¿Cómo puede ser esto?
Jesus answered him,
Jesús respondió y le dijo:
“Are you the teacher of Israel y and
Tú eres maestro a de Israel,
yet you do not understand these things?
¿y no entiendes estas cosas?
