In the chapter, Nicodemus is puzzled and asks Jesus what he means by saying that "Ye must be born again".
He questions: "How can a man re-enter his mother's womb? Ehrman says that this confusion is because in Greek (the language of the gospel) the word again is ambiguous.
It is [the Apostle Paul's] teaching in one instance that all who are Christ's by faith are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to promise.
He is concerned, however, with the fact that the promise is not being fulfilled to the seed of Abraham (referring to the Jews)." Charles Hodge writes that "The subjective change wrought in the soul by the grace of God, is variously designated in Scripture" with terms such as new birth, resurrection, new life, new creation, renewing of the mind, dying to sin and living to righteousness, and translation from darkness to light.

The Oxford Handbook of Religion and American Politics notes: "The GSS ...has asked a born-again question on three occasions ...Ehrman says that this raises questions about the authenticity of the dialogue, the meaning of the words, and, therefore, the use of the phrase.A Unitarian work called The Gospel Anchor noted in the 1830s that the phrase was not mentioned by the other Evangelists, nor by the Apostles except Peter.
An early example of the term in its more modern use appears in the sermons of John Wesley.
