Jesus came to restore our human capacity to relate to God. That requires an ability to perceive, understand and function in spiritual reality. We are spiritual beings who have largely forgotten who we really are. Since we are essentially like “fish out of water” when it comes to spiritual reality, we rely on metaphors - things that we understand and can relate to which also help us understand spiritual things. In this passage, we will learn about spiritual reality from Jesus going to the temple, from him talking about new birth and from discussions about heaven and earth.
