Sermons about Nicodemus
Pastor Billy Onen preaches about Jesus teaching Nicodemus.
Nicodemus sought out Jesus but went away wondering a bit: "What is this born again?" Still, he continued to search and ponder as we see him appear several times through the Gospel of John. Finally, he is there at the very end, when others have run from Jesus, Nicodemus steps up to care for the body of the crudified Jesus. Nicodemus, like Daniel in the Old Testament, stood for God in a hostile setting, when he was not certain about the outcome and willing to risk his reputation and accomplishments. Truly, a hero of faith.
The Lord explains how scripture points to Christ.
The spiritual aspects of being born-again.
All of humanity is broken beyond repair. You are broken beyond repair. What hope is there then for us?
Continuing in the Bible's explanation of the term "born-again".
Most people look at salvation as complicated, but God makes it plain & simple.
This teaching is focused on the passage surrounding John 3:16, the most quoted scripture (est.) in America - but perhaps the most misunderstood? If Nicodemus was confused by the idea of being born a second time, could it be that we misunderstand also this powerful teaching by Jesus if we simply gloss over it as the wrapper for John 3:16. Fasten your seatbelts for a whirlwind tour of the Old Testament for the Water and Wind / Spirit references, the obscure reference to a snake on a stick, and a really exclusive statement by Jesus about himself!
What card are you playing as you go through life? A look at Nicodemus, the context surround his life, and Jesus' approach to him. The Kingdom of God cannot be earned, but can only be when we recognize God is the one who can change us, that Jesus is who he says he is, and that Jesus came to rescue us.
