Lecture 9, A Promised Birth:

As John’s gospel shows, Nicodemus was taken utterly off guard by Jesus’ teachings about the new birth. A natural response might have been to ask Jesus where He had come up with these peculiar ideas about grown men being born a second time. However, Jesus’ response implied that any person who had read the Old Testament should have readily understood the need for new birth. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson will show that the concept of a new birth was nothing new in Jesus’ day. Long before, God had promised His people that a day was coming when He would give them new hearts and make them into new creatures.
