John 3:8 The wind G4151 bloweth G4154 where G3699 it listeth G2309, and thou hearest G191 the sound G5456 thereof G846, but G235 canst G1492 not G3756 tell G1492 whence G4159 it cometh G2064, and G2532 whither G4226 it goeth G5217: so G3779 is G2076 every one G3956 that is born G1080 of G1537 the Spirit G4151.

The air pushes hard in whatever direction it chooses, you can hear its tone, but you cannot see it path or its position. In this same way, people are regenerated by YHVH.”

Romans 9:15 “For He tells Moses: I will show mercy to whom I will show mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.”

I feel like there is something more to this verse. It could say “The Spirit of YHVH pushes hard in whomever He chooses and you can hear his tone. (conviction, preaching) There is no outward physical evidence to his position. (He/she isn’t someone to be exalted.) This is one to ponder deeper.

“Nicodemus responds by saying, In what way can regeneration be possible?”

 

John 3:10 Jesus G2424 answered G611 and G2532 said G2036 unto him G846, Art G1488 thou G4771 a master G1320 of Israel G2474, and G2532 knowest G1097 not G3756 these things G5023?

“Yeshua responded by saying, Are you not a teacher to the House of Israel? You do not know these truths?”

 

John 3:11 Verily G281, verily G281, I say G3004 unto thee G4671, We speak G2980 that G3754 G3739 we do know G1492, and G2532 testify G3140 that G3739 we have seen G3708; and G2532 ye receive G2983 not G3756 our G2257 witness G3141.

“Jesus lays forth a trustworthy statement and so it shall be to you (Nicodemus). You speak because you personally know how, or why, something happened and you are a witness to it. You cannot discern or grasp merely by the evidence after the fact.”

Yeshua is trying to explain salvation of the human race outside of the sacrificial system. That YHVH has the sole ability to free men from the bondage of sin equating to death. The Pharisees saw this as their role and as such they went by the golden rule. That being he who has the gold makes the rules.
