Nicodim"I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again" ( John 3,3).

What did Nicodemus know about the kingdom? From the Bible he knew it would be ruled by God, it would be restored on earth, and it would incorporate God's people. Jesus revealed to this devout Pharisee that the kingdom would come to the whole world (John 3,16), not just the Jews, and that Nicodemus wouldn't be a part of it unless he was personally born again (John 3,5).

This was a revolutionary concept: the kingdom is personal, not national or ethnic, and its entrance requirements are repentance and spiritual rebirth. Jesus later taught that God's kingdom has already begun in the hearts of believers (Luke 17,21). It will be fully realized when Jesus returns again to judge the world and abolish evil forever (Revelation 21,22).(Zondervan).
