1  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 have come from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him."
3  Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."

1.     Condition For Eternal Life In The Kingdom

John 3:1-3 (NASB)
1  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 have come from God as a teacher; for no one can do these signs that You do unless God is with him."
3  Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God."

2.     Compelling Work Of The Spirit

John 3:4-8 (NASB)
4  Nicodemus *said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old? He cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb and be born, can he?"
5  Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
6  "That which is born of the flesh is flesh, and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
7  "Do not be amazed that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
8  "The wind blows where it wishes and you hear the sound of it, but do not know where it comes from and where it is going; so is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

3.     Cross Of Christ Believe & Be Born Again

John 3:9-17 (NASB)
9  Nicodemus said to Him, "How can these things be?"
10  Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel and do not understand these things?
11  "Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know and testify of what we have seen, and you do not accept our testimony.
12  "If I told you earthly things and you do not believe, how will you believe if I tell you heavenly things?
13  "No one has ascended into heaven, but He who descended from heaven: the Son of Man.
14  "As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;
15  so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.
16  "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.
17  "For God did not send the Son into the world to judge the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.

Luke 24:1-7 (NASB)
1  But on the first day of the week, at early dawn, they came to the tomb bringing the spices which they had prepared.
2  And they found the stone rolled away from the tomb,
3  but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus.
4  While they were perplexed about this, behold, two men suddenly stood near them in dazzling clothing;
5  and as the women were terrified and bowed their faces to the ground, the men said to them, "Why do you seek the living One among the dead?
6  "He is not here, but He has risen. Remember how He spoke to you while He was still in Galilee,
7  saying that the Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, and be crucified, and the third day rise again."
