Born From Above: Sermon on John 3:3

This interview with Nicodemus is particularly interesting, as being our Lord's first contact with the purest and most intelligent Judaism of his day. The voice of Prophecy had been silent through four hundred years, but is now heard again: and the Jewish ruler, convinced by the miracles of Christ that He was at least a teacher sent from God, hastens to the oracle for light. The nature of his inquiries is easily gathered from the conversation between the two. The cry had rung out from the banks of the Jordan, "the kingdom of heaven is at hand;" and this "master in Israel" would learn the nature of that kingdom, how it stood affected to the ancient system of Moses, and what were Christ's personal relations to the same.
