Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: January 30, 2016

[“…born again” (John 3:3).]  Check the strategically selected word again.  The Greek language offers two choices for again: 1) palin, which means a repetition of an act; to redo what was done earlier, [and] 2) anoten, which also depicts a repeated action, but requires the original source to repeat it.  It means “from above, from a higher place, things which come from heaven or God.”  In other words, the one who did the work the first time does it again.  This is the word Jesus chose.
