~ A Man Full of Religion ~
In the Gospel of John chapters 3-4-5 we find three distinct types of sinners.

Person ~ A man named Nicodemus. A man of high rank. A favored Jew. High social standing.
Contact ~ He came to the Savior. He sought out Christ by night.
Problem ~ He was full of religion but he was a religious wreck.
The question is not, “Are you a wreck?”
but rather, “What kind of wreck are you?”

Key Teaching / Lesson ~ You must be born again (first is physical birth—“born of water” and second is spiritual birth—“born of the spirit”).
Miscellaneous ~ Water is mentioned—Baptism is mentioned. (Physical and spiritual birth are discussed.)
