    Is the King James Bible only about the New Testament ? I know how silly that must sound .
  • Crystal Mack - in Reply on John 14:21
    All 66 books of the Bible are in the King James Version old and new testament with nothing added and nothing removed. And to my knowledge the only Bible without copy rights so it can be shared freely.
  • Mishael - in Reply on John 14:21
    Most Walmart's have KJV Bibles back in the book section. They have New KJV too.

    Compare John chapter 3 to see which one you like best. Hard bound Bibles don't lay flat; so see how that works for you.

    I like publisher Thomas Nelson the most.

    Priced very reasonable.
  • Helen on John 14:21
    RE: John 3 verses 3 and 5. I am confused. Verse 3 you must be born again to enter the kingdom of God.

    Verse 5 you must be born of water AND of the spirit.

    3: Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.

    5: Jesus answered, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.

    QUESTION: If a person is born again of the spirit ONLY and not of water he/she CANNOT enter the kingdom of God?
  • Chris - in Reply on John 14:21
    Helen, if you look at that encounter that Jesus had with Nicodemus, Nicodemus had just asked Jesus how someone could be physically born again a second time. He asked this because the spiritual truth that Jesus told him in v 3, that a man cannot see the Kingdom of God unless he is born again, was confusing to him. So Jesus explained this to him in verse 5: "unless a man be born of water (referring to that physical birth that Nicodemus was thinking of) & of the Spirit (referring to that spiritual birth that Jesus was speaking about), that man cannot enter God's Kingdom. In other words, it's my sense that if Nicodemus hadn't brought up the question of the impossibility of a person to be physically born twice into the world, then Jesus probably would not have referred to the necessity of a person being born physically (of water). The "water" we understand can refer also to the amniotic fluid being released in 'physical' birth.

    So, you & I need not fear about the words in verse 5 - they were only for Nicodemus (& any of us now) who might think that to be "born of water" meant something else or an added requirement to spiritual birth. No - spiritual birth is only by faith in Christ's work at the Cross & nothing else. If there was something else required, then salvation does not come by faith, and that's not the Gospel message.
  • Thabo Lekgothu on John 14:21
    Limitations of the flesh overshadow humanity and the devil has made it look like it is difficult to obey. Without the presence or the indwelling of the holy spirit the flesh will take over and cost human delay in fulfillment of their destinies. Our Master Jesus is continuously in the prayer alter making intersessions for the saints for their perfection of every imperfections in their lives. Disobedience is too costly. Who can bear the cost? Only the accuser of our brethren. Jesus is LORD
  • John madden on John 14:21
