Read John 3:1-10. What does the text tell us about Nicodemus? Why do you think he came to Jesus? Do vss 19-20 help us understand why he came to Jesus at night?
Why was Jesus so direct with him? How does Jesus account for Nicodemus’ lack of understanding - in spite of the fact that he is “the teacher of Israel.” (vs. 10)
3. From vs. 16-18, what stands out to you about God? From vs. 15-21, how does faith show itself?
4. How is Jesus’ use of “born again” different from the world’s use of the term? How would you explain what it means to be born again to someone who is confused about the concept?
5. If someone says to you, “OK, I understand that I need to born again, and I understand that it is something that God does and I can’t cause it or bring it about myself. Is there nothing I can do?” What would you say? (Use the text - John 1-18 for your answer)
