John chapter 3 in the New Testament is a wonderful chapter in the Bible for so many different reasons. One reason is it shows us so much about Jesus' heart to saved the lost. Another is how it shows us Jesus' ability to teach people on "their level" without compromising the message. And of course another great thing about this chapter is that Jesus shows us that it is through faith in Him that we are saved, and not through mighty men or religious leaders.
However, it cannot be ignored that when a person reads the first few lines of the chapter, you quickly find out the answer to the question of "How does a person go to heaven?" Jesus Himself gives us that answer.
John 3:1-5 - "Now there was a man of the Pharisees named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews. 2 This man came to Jesus by night and said to him, “Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher come from God, for no one can do these signs that you do unless God is with him.” 3 Jesus answered him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.” 4 Nicodemus said to him, “How can a man be born when he is old? Can he enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born?” 5 Jesus answered, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.
