Chapter Three

Contents: Nicodemus and the new birth. The last testimony of John the Baptist.

Characters: God, Jesus, Holy Spirit, Nicodemus, John the Baptist, Moses, John’s disciples.

Conclusion: Since the natural man, however gifted, moral, or refined, is absolutely blind to spiritual truth and impotent to enter the kingdom, a new birth through Christ as the channel and the Holy Spirit as the power is an absolute necessity. Heaven is a prepared place for a prepared people. The only gateway to it is—Jesus.

Key Word: New birth, v. 3.

Strong Verses: 3, 6, 7, 16, 18, 19, 36.

Striking Facts: v. 14. The bitten Israelite was healed by simply looking to the brazen serpent, not by looking at his wound, although he must of course be conscious of his condition. One look healed the bite. So one look of faith to Jesus saves. It is not the way we look, but the object we look at that heals.


About Summarized Bible: Complete Summary of the New Testament

Most people have two or more Bibles in their home, and many people can point to two or three chapters and summarize their content (such as Genesis 1 or Psalm 23). Yet out of the millions of people who have Bibles, only a handful can summarize each book of the Bible, and almost no one can summarize each chapter of each book of the Bible.

In this helpful handbook to the Bible, one can attain a quick summary or overview of the Bible in a matter of hours. It provides more than just interesting facts—it makes personal application to your life—book by book and chapter by chapter.

The book can be read for its content, or it can be used side by side with a Bible as a handbook or commentary. It is a valuable tool for the Bible student, an extremely helpful aid for new Christians, and it deserves a place on the bookshelf of every Christian home.
