John 3:7-15Common English Bible (CEB)
7 Don’t be surprised that I said to you, ‘You must be born anew.’ 8 God’s Spirit[a] blows wherever it wishes. You hear its sound, but you don’t know where it comes from or where it is going. It’s the same with everyone who is born of the Spirit.”
9 Nicodemus said, “How are these things possible?”
10 “Jesus answered, “You are a teacher of Israel and you don’t know these things? 11 I assure you that we speak about what we know and testify about what we have seen, but you don’t receive our testimony. 12 If I have told you about earthly things and you don’t believe, how will you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? 13 No one has gone up to heaven except the one who came down from heaven, the Human One.[b] 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so must the Human One[c] be lifted up 15 so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life.
