An exposition of John 1:10-14.
Regeneration is the sovereign activity of God wherein the Holy Spirit implants the principle of a new life in the soul of man, thereby uniting that soul with the Person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ. Also called the New Birth, this activity is unrelated to the modern day Charismatic Movement; it is irrespective of water baptism; and it is not contingent on faith and repentance. However, those who are born again demonstrate their experience by water baptism and they exercise faith and repentance as fruits of the Holy Spirit. This study provides a Scriptural overview of this doctrine and gives special attention to the first reference.
