Jesus told us very specifically, “You must be born again” (John 3:7) . Yet, to many people, even those who call themselves Christians, the concept of the new birth is very mysterious. In this edition of the podcast, therefore, we explain that, according to Jesus, we need to experience the new birth for ourselves if we are to become His followers. Then we go one to explain what this new birth actually is and what are some of its results.
This is a continuation of our series explaining our brief video, “The Parable of the Four Bottles.” You can find that video on the website below.
