The people that do know their God sliall be strong, and

There was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a
ruler of the Jews : the same came to Jesus by night, and said unto
him. Rabbi, we know that thou art a teacher come fi'om God : for
no man can do these miracles that thou doest, except God be with
him. Jesus answered and said unto him. Verily, verily, I say unto
thee, Qrxcept a man be born again, !)e cannot see tl)e king-
bom of ©ob. Nicodemus saith unto him. How can a man be
born when he is old ? can he enter the second time into his mother's
womb, and be born ? Jesus answered. Verily, verily, I say unto

thee, Except a man be born of mater, anb of tlje Spirit, he

cannot enter into the king'lom of God. That which is born of the
flesh, is flesh ; and that which is born of the Spirit, is spirit.

And Jesus called a little child unto him, and set him in the
midst of them, and said, Verily, I say unto you, (JT^cept Tie be

conucrteb, anb become as little cl]ilbren, ye shall not enter into

the kinsifdom of heaven.

And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice
speaking unto me, and saying in the Hebrew tongue, Saul, Saul,
why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the

Jesus whom thou persecutest. But lise, and stand upon thy feet :
for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a min-
ister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and
of those things in the which I will a])pear unto thee ; delivering thee
from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send

thee, to open tl)eir enco, anh to turn tl)cm from barkness to

The love of Christ constraineth us ; because we thus judge,
that if one died for all, then were all dead : and that he died for
all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves,
but unto him which died for them, and rose again. Wherefore
henceforth know we no man after the flesh : yea, though we have
known Christ after the flesh, yet now henceforth know we him no

more. Therefore, if ann man be in QTbrist, he is a nem crea-
