TSNTyndale Study Notes:

3:1 John links 2:25 and 3:1 by referring to humanity as a whole (“human nature,” 2:25) and then to one specific man using the same Greek word (anthrōpos) in both verses.
• Nicodemus was saturated in religious knowledge and had witnessed Jesus’ work (2:13-24), but he had not experienced spiritual rebirth.
• a Pharisee: See study note on 1:24. He was elite, proud of his spiritual purity, and well educated in Jewish law.
