Mark 12:34

12:34 not far from the kingdom. Compare the rich young ruler of 10:21 (“You lack one thing”) and Nicodemus (John 3:1–21). In each case there is a need for new birth into eternal life (which is entering into the kingdom of God), something made possible by the death and resurrection of the Son of Man (John 3:3, 14, 15).
