1 Does it teach Holy Spirit Baptism? An Exegesis of John3:3, 5Does it teach Holy Spirit Baptism?
2 JOHN 3:3. Unless a man is born (γεννηθῇ, GENNETHE, first aorist passive subjunctive of GENNÁO, “be born or begotten”) again (ἄνωθεν, ÁNOTHEN, “from above”)… ____________ GENNETHE ÁNOTHEN, “born from above”; spiritual birth; heavenly birth
3 JOHN 3:3. …he cannot (οὐ δύναται, OU DÚNATAI, not possible for him to) see (ἰδεῖν, IDEIN, aorist infinitive) the kingdom of God (τὴν βασιλείαν τοῦ Θεοῦ, TÈN BASILEÍAN TOU THEOU).______________________________The new birth is necessary because the natural man cannot enter the kingdom of heaven by any other means.
4 JOHN 3:5 Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except one be born of water and Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God!_____________________________________________________“BORN OF WATER” (γεννηθῇ ἐξ ὕδατος, GENNETHE ÉX HÚDATOS, “born from, or out of water”- Strong’s Hebrew & Greek Lexicons)
5 ἐξ, ÉX, “from, out of [a place, state, time or cause]”; “when used in composition, it gives the general import of completion” (Strong’s Hebrew & Greek Dictionaries).
6 “God sent forth his Son, born of (ÉK, out of, from) a woman” (GALATIANS 4:4). ____________________“He that is born of (ÉK, out of, from) the flesh is flesh”(JOHN 3:6).___________________These pews are made of (ÉK, out of, from) wood.
7 NO!HINDI!SAAN!NYET!Does the phrase GENNETHE ÉX HÚDATOS, “born from, or out of water,” mean “baptized in water?”
14 And United With Christ In The Likeness Of His Death Through Baptism
15 “BORN OF WATER” DOES NOT MEAN “BAPTIZED IN WATER” (2) Rebirth happens AFTER one rises out of the watery grave of baptism.
16 “Like as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life” (ROM. 6:4)
17 W A T E R Resurrected with Him Raised to Life Buried with Him Rom 6:3-4 Do you not know that all we who were baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death? We were buried therefore with him through baptism unto death: that like as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we also might walk in newness of life.”Resurrected with HimRaised to LifeBuried with HimShared His Death
18 Hallelujah!Raised From the Watery Grave of Baptism We Become New Creatures in Christ
20 RATHER THE BIBLE TEACHES THAT WE “WALK IN NEWNESS OF LIFE”!
21 No, because GENNETHE, “born,” does not mean “baptized”! Does the Bible say that “being born in Spirit” means “baptized in the Spirit”!No, because GENNETHE, “born,” does not mean “baptized”!
22 (4) γεννηθῇ ἐξ ὕδατος και πνεύματος is imperative and is therefore a command. We have said that “baptism in the Spirit” is a promise and not a command. To say that the phrase means “be baptized in water and in the Spirit” is wrong interpretation.
23 γεννηθῇ ἐξ ὕδατος καὶ Πνεύματος, (5) “BORN OF WATER AND SPIRIT,”γεννηθῇ ἐξ ὕδατος καὶ Πνεύματος,is only one kind of rebirth,a birth of both water and Spirit.
24 It is a state one enters into as he rises from the watery grave of baptism. In that state he enters the kingdom of much privileges and greater service, of which Jesus Himself is builder and king.
25 John 3:3-5 came to be enforced beginning in acts 2! When the church-kingdom came and when the gospel in its fullness was first preached.It is a law parallel with MARK 16:15-16, MATT. 28:18-20 and LUKE 24:46-47.
