John's Message of Salvation
The verses below are taken from John's Gospel, and constitute the fundamental
message of salvation through faith in Christ as pronounced in John's
Gospel (Good News) record of the words of Jesus. In these passages, Jesus
begins by addressing his comments to Nicodemus, a religious leader who
came to Jesus seeking candid answers to his spiritual search. Jesus replies
to his question, "How can a man be born again when he is already

his work; and this is God's will: That you come to truly believe in the
Messiah, whom the Father has sent.
