John 3 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle I

While I was still lying in darkness and gloomy night, wavering hither and thither, tossed about on the foam of this boastful age, and uncertain of my wandering steps, knowing nothing of my real life, and remote from truth and light, I used to regard it as a difficult matter, and especially as difficult in respect of my character at that time, that a man should be capable of being born again[5]

John 3 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Gregory Thaumaturgus Twelve Topics on the Faith

If any one affirms that Christ is saved, and refuses to acknowledge that He is the Saviour of the world, and the Light of the world, even as it is written,[16]

John 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

And so it will be becoming for `the sons of God'[20]

John 3:1 - NIV, NAB - in Lactantius Divine Institutes Book VI

But if this is done by those who do not know the truth, how much more ought we to do it, who are able to give true precepts,[14]

John 3:2 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book IV

Accordingly he says more manifestly: "And every (man) who hath this hope in Him maketh himself chaste, just as Himself withal is chaste."[16]

John 3:3 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

and accordingly, "he who is being born of God doeth not sin, because the seed of God abideth in him; and he cannot sin, because he hath been born of God. Herein are manifest the sons of God and the sons of the devil."[249]

John 3:3 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise on Re-Baptism by an Anonymous Writer

John 3:5 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book VIII

since it is written, "Except a man be born again of water, and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."[4]

John 3:5 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXXII

And therefore it behoves those to be baptized who come from heresy to the Church, that so they who are prepared, in the lawful, and true, and only baptism of the holy Church, by divine regeneration, for the kingdom of God, may be born of both sacraments, because it is written, "Except a man be born of water and of the Spirit, he cannot enter into the kingdom of God."[33]

John 3:5 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

John 3:6 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Dogmatical and Historical Fragments

in sooth, have been put in trust to give the account of His generation after the flesh; and are you then so bold as to seek the account (of His generation) after the Spirit, which the Father keeps with Himself, intending to reveal it then to the holy ones and those worthy of seeing His face?

John 3:14 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Barnabas

For since transgression was committed by Eve through means of the serpent, [the Lord] brought it to pass that every [kind of] serpents bit them, and they died,[172]

John 3:14 - NIV, NAB - in Dialogue of Justin

And it seems that the type and sign, which was erected to counteract the serpents which bit Israel, was intended for the salvation of those who believe that death was declared to come thereafter on the serpent through Him that would be crucified, but salvation to those who had been bitten by him and had betaken themselves to Him that sent His Son into the world to be crucified.[359]

John 3:14 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

And if we owe our lives to the brethren, and have made such a mutual compact with the Saviour, why should we any more hoard and shut up worldly goods, which are beggarly, foreign to us and transitory? Shall we shut up from each other what after a little shall be the property of the fire? Divinely and weightily John says," He that loveth not his brother is a murderer,"[67]

John 3:15 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise X On Jealousy and Envy

e darkness of jealousy? why do you enfold yourself in the cloud of malice? why do you quench all the light of peace and charity in the blindness of envy? why do you return to the devil, whom you had renounced? why do you stand like Cain? For that he who is jealous of his brother, and has him in hatred, is bound by the guilt of homicide, the Apostle John declares in his epistle, saying, "Whosoever hateth his brother is a murderer; and ye know that no murderer hath life abiding in him."[24]

John 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

John, in fact, exhorts us to lay down our lives even for our brethren,[81]

John 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

too, that ye may be able to quench the darts of the devil, when doubtless ye resist him, and sustain his assaults in their utmost force. Accordingly John also teaches that we must lay down our lives for the brethren;[40]

John 3:16 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise on Re-Baptism by an Anonymous Writer

even as God also says, "For God so loved the world, that He gave His only-begotten Son, that every one that believeth on Him should not perish, but have everlasting life,"[42]

John 3:17 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

John 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Exhortation to the Heathen

Not only unable to pity yourselves, you are incapable even of yielding to the persuasions of those who commiserate you; enslaved as you are to evil custom, and, clinging to it voluntarily till your last breath, you are hurried to destruction: "because light is come into the world, and men have loved the darkness rather than the light,"[134]

John 3:19 - NIV, NAB - in Dionysius A Commentary on the Beginning of Ecclesiastes

John 3:31 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Exegetical Fragments

This is indeed an instrument, harmonious, melodious, well-ordered, that took in no human discord, and did nothing out of measure, but maintained in all things, as it were, harmony towards the Father; for, as He says: "He that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: He that cometh from heaven, testifies of what He has seen and heard."[247]

John 3:31 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

"who came down from heaven; "[171]

John 3:33 - NIV, NAB - in Fragments of Clement Found in the Oxford Edition

Wherefore the Father bestows on him the glory and honour that was due and meet, putting on him the best robe, the robe of immortality; and a ring, a royal signet and divine seal,-impress of consecration, signature of glory, pledge of testimony (for it is said, "He hath set to his seal that God is true,")[2]

, but to every creature, as both Lord and God? And in the former case indeed this name is given with reserve, in the latter lavishly; in the former by measure, in the latter above all kind of measure: "For," it is said, "the Father giveth not to the Son by measure, for the Father loveth the Son."[163]
