Jesus Teaches About New Birth

Scripture: John 3:1-21

Series: Jesus Among the People (Gospels)
Speaker: Adam Burton
Date: May 28, 2020

Summary

In the last session, we saw how Jesus revealed His mission. In this session, we will look at Jesus’ teaching on the new birth, which is necessary to be able to see and enter the kingdom of God. New birth involves all three Persons of the Trinity; it is a gift of God the Father through the work of the Holy Spirit through faith in the Son of God. The new birth is characterized by a hunger for obedience, and it motivates us to share the good news with others as we trust in the transformational power of the Spirit. The reconciling role of Christ on the cross makes possible the true and lasting transformation of our hearts through the new birth.
