Did Jesus say we were born again or begotten from above? Why does this matter?


[00:22:57]
How does looking at the words in Greek help us understand what Jesus meant?


[00:35:27]
What does the Holy Spirit have to do with all of this?


[00:47:29]
Did Nicodemus finally understand what Jesus meant? Do we?


Theme Scripture: John 3:3

The Christian belief in being “born again” can be at the very least confusing. Does it mean you get to restart your life, kind of like a do-over? Is it beginning a brand new life lived in a brand new context? Does being born again mean you are the same person with the same issues, or are you somebody different? Is it living a new spiritual life in place of our present physical life – “once in grace, always in grace”?   Does being born again actually mean what we think it means? To figure this out, we need to not only have a clear understanding of context, we also need to have a good sense of some specific Greek words and how they are used.

Two words

We need to be clear on the definitions of two little words -  the difference between comprehending a deep biblical truth and latching on to a fabricated story. The story of these two little words begins with Nicodemus, a wise and respected leader among the Jewish leadership of his day. Even though his counterparts inwardly and outwardly despised Jesus, Nicodemus saw something different. He saw a learned, wise and compassionate man who not only always knew what to say, he also knew what to do. In Jesus he saw a healer and a teacher, a man connected to God. Nicodemus sought Jesus out under the cover of nightfall. He was seeking the answers needed to better understand this man he had observed from a distance.

A powerful truth

When Jesus spoke to Nicodemus, he told him far more than Nicodemus could have anticipated.  Once Nicodemus proclaimed he knew Jesus was a man from God, Jesus responded. There was no small talk.  Instead, Jesus simply proclaimed a powerful truth.  He said that to see the kingdom, one must be “born again.” To Nicodemus, this statement was entirely perplexing. His response showed his confusion. To us, this statement contains those two little words that carry so much meaning - you must be “born again.”

On the surface, it seems like this is a no brainer, after all they are simple words with obvious meanings. The problem arises when we look into the ancient language in which these words were originally recorded. We find marked differences. For instance, the word for “born” in Greek is the exact same word for “begetting.” When talking about a masculine role in the reproductive process, the word means "to beget." When talking about a feminine role in the process it means to be born.

What does all this mean?  Check out our January 27, 2020 podcast, “Are Christians Really Born Again?” for more. We walk through the entire conversation where Jesus taught Nicodemus.  We trace what Nicodemus knew and what he was missing. We find what meanings apply where and then paint a picture of the actual lesson Jesus taught. This is a really fascinating journey with a really powerful conclusion. Don’t miss it!

What does the future glory of humanity look like?


Theme Scripture: Romans 8:17

We know every Christian wants to go to heaven.  The real question is, does every Christian know what is required to get there?  Last week we began to talk about the several important elements God has put in place.  These define not only His plan in general, but they clearly show us what the Christian call is all about.  We found some very legal pieces to the puzzle, as well as some very practical pieces.  It all boils down to two things:  First, there IS a well-defined path to heaven. Second, for the rest of the world not going to heaven, there also IS a path to salvation. Its destination is earthly, but with many similarities to the heavenly path.  Now let’s put all of these pieces in perspective!

Continue Reading

What about glory?

Let’s start by talking about glory, which is generally perceived as a destination.  We usually associate glory with heaven, but in the Bible, glory covers a broad spectrum of results.  There is the glory of men in their imperfect state that some strive to have.  In contrast is the glory of immortal life in heaven that Jesus’ followers strive for.  Glory as represented in the Bible can be found in many different endeavors.  It does not have to be godly to be sought after; it just needs to be appealing.  This begs the question; is there any truly God-honoring glory for the billions of humanity who are not following Jesus as his disciple?  The answer here is a surprising yes.

What about heaven?

How can this be when Jesus spoke so plainly about heaven as the key destination?  It all comes down to understanding what the scriptural teaching regarding the destiny of different groups of people. Based on last week’s podcast, we know God’s plan of salvation entails four necessities required to get to heaven: redemption, justification, reconciliation and sanctification. While these things bring glorification to Jesus’ followers, we cannot discount what those very same things can do for everyone else.

The Bible speaks plainly and often about the positive effects of redemption, justification, etc., on the non-believing world.  One reason so many who believe in Scripture don’t see this is because it is in many ways veiled.  There are, in fact, many prophecies which point to the salvation of the “everybody else.”  Because they are prophetic Old Testament utterances, they not only get less attention, they are also hard to understand.

Check out our January 20, 2020 podcast, “What Three Steps will Get Us to Heaven? (Part 2) for more.  We compare how God’s plan unfolds with those who follow Jesus and those who don’t.  While the differences in these two groups are dramatic, the similarities are profound.  Follow along with us as we trace specific prophecies that reveal what the path of those who don’t believe now will look like later.  Watch God’s plans and purposes unfold out from His word!  This is a journey worth taking.

Theme Scripture: Romans 5:1

So, what does the road to heaven actually look like? If you look across the wide spectrum of Christian beliefs you will find far more variety in the answer than you might have thought. You would expect all of the answers to include believing in Jesus - and that's a good start. However, the Bible gives us several other qualifiers for being on the road to heaven, and this is where the confusion begins. The fact is, going to heaven is NOT merely about what one believes. As a matter of fact, being on this journey is not something we can just one day decide to do! Heaven IS possible, but what steps must be taken?

Continue Reading

Salvation

God’s plan can be explained by understanding the biblical meaning of six words. While these words reflect the journey to heaven, they also reveal so much more. SALVATION is first on the list. It describes the overall picture of God’s plan. God knew sin would arrive through the influence of Satan and that His human creation would suffer its terrible consequences.  Because God knew this all ahead of time, He also had a plan in place to counteract the deadly effects of sin. His was a plan of SALVATION. This plan that would satisfy justice and bring his human family back to the opportunity for eternal life. By understanding what this first word means, we begin to understand the mind of God.

Redemption and Justification

So, what about heaven? We all know God’s plan provided Jesus as the ransom price for the sin of Adam. This has to do with REDEMPTION, the second of the six words you'll have to listen to podcast to hear about. Jesus did far more than simply pay the price for Adam. In accordance with God’s will, he drew followers to him who would be willing to live lives of sacrifice as he did. To these he promised the opportunity of a heavenly reward.  No follower could be considered for this privilege unless they were first called by God to JUSTIFICATION, the third word on the list.  Christianity uses this word as a basis for going to heaven.

JUSTIFICATION in the Bible is unique. Today when we say someone has justification for doing something, we mean they have ample reasons behind them. We don’t necessarily agree that their reasons are absolutely righteous, but we acknowledge they are actionable. On the contrary, to be justified in the Bible is to be made right before God. This is only possible because of the ransom of Jesus.

Does this mean when we are justified we are acceptable in God’s sight? What about SANCTIFICATION? What does it mean? How does it fit in with being right in God’s eyes?  Check out our January 13, 2020 podcast, “What Three Steps Will Get Us to Heaven? (Part 1)” for more. Then head over to Part 2 for the full picture. We decipher these life-giving words, put them in context and clearly lay out how the pieces fit together. Following the heavenly call is a life-long endeavor. Why not find out how it all works?

How is the end of what we know actually a powerful beginning?


Theme Scripture: Ecclesiastes 3:1

Life is often measured by time. Our society is hyperfocused on immediate gratification, which means we don’t want to have to wait. We don’t want to have any interval pass before we get what we want.  We have scheduled events, appointments, work hours, lunch breaks and periods for sleep. All of these things are time-driven. We celebrate birthdays, holidays and vacations - all of which are driven by the calendar – a tool for measuring time. With such a complete dependency on the clock, what would make us think God’s plan for humanity is any different? How often do we hear people complain that if God exists and is all powerful, why doesn’t He….? Let’s look at time, seasons and ages and what parts they play in God’s master plan!

Continue Reading

While Solomon’s wisdom seems to be leaning towards an “It doesn’t really matter what we do” kind of thinking, let’s consider another approach. In verses 16 and 17, he reveals that wickedness is rampant in its dominance of righteousness but God is going to judge both. This is significant for two reasons. First, it adds a measure of responsibility to each of our actions. Second, it gives us an assurance of God’s awareness. The world is barreling down the road of self-destructive and egotistical thinking and actions. Solomon is saying, in spite of this, it is all within the power and permission of God Himself.

Looking through God's eyes

Now, if we go back and look at all of the things Solomon said had their time, we can see them with different eyes. What if we began this review with the conclusion that God has everything in control? We could then read there is “a time to kill and a time to heal” in the context of God’s timing and not our own. It is so easy to see things like killing, hatred, weeping and mourning and become exasperated…and even hopeless. After all, we look back over our own lives and the lives of those before us, and it’s always the same and never gets better!

Check out our January 6, 2020 podcast, “Why Does Time Matter in God’s Plan?” for more. We break down each comparison Solomon makes. Then we put them all into the context of prophecy and God’s plan. A coherent story is told. It is not only a story of the unfolding of God’s plan, it is also a reminder of God’s time clock. Death, dismay and destruction all look different through the eyes of eternity!
