Jesus makes one statement, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God." This statement sparks 2 questions from Nicodemas: 1) "How can a man be born when he is old?" (3:4), and 2) How can these things be? (3:9). Jesus answers both questions; however, 3:9-21, the second question and answer is clearly stemming from the first question and answer. In other words, 3:9-21 is a furthering of what was being explained in the above verses. Outline I. Jesus' statement (3:3) II. Nicodemas' question in response (3:4) III. Jesus' answer to the question (3:5-8) IV. Nicodemas' follow-up question (3:9) V. Jesus' answer to the question (3:10-21) Structurally, I think it is clear that this is a Divinely steared conversation led by Jesus in such a way that was intended to provoke these questions from Nicodemas. However, I feel that some hidden keys to understanding the meaning of Jesus' answers lies in 2 verses: 3:1 and 3:10. 3:1 tells us that Nicodemas was a "Pharisee, a ruler of the Jews" and 3:10 tells us that he is also a "teacher of Israel" and that Jesus thinks he ought to already understand the things He is explaining here. So this all means that the concepts must have been clearly and explicitly taught in the Old Testament already. Up to 3:10 Jesus has spoken of water, wind, Spirit, and a new birth. See Ezekiel 36:22 - 37:14. Even though Jesus is explicitely speaking of the new birth with Nicodemas, he is also implicitly speaking of the fulfillment of the prophesies given in Ezekiel (and other places).

John 3:1-21
NT
nasb
Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews;
this man came to Jesus by night and said to Him, "Rabbi, we know that You have come from God as a teacher;
for no one can do these signs that You do
unless God is with him."
conditional
ground
progression
Jesus answered and said to him, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again
he cannot see the kingdom of God."
Nicodemus said to Him, "How can a man be born when he is old?
He cannot enter a second time into his mother's womb
and be born, can he?"
series
ideaexplanation
Jesus answered, "Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit
he cannot enter into the kingdom of God.
"That which is born of the flesh is flesh,
and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.
"Do not be amazed that I said to you, 'You must be born again.'
"The wind blows where it wishes
and you hear the sound of it,
alternative
but do not know where it comes from and
where it is going;
so is everyone who is born of the Spirit."

Nicodemus said to Him, "How can these things be?"
Jesus answered and said to him, "Are you the teacher of Israel and
do not understand these things?
"Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know
and testify of what we have seen,
and you do not accept our testimony.
"If I told you earthly things
and you do not believe,
how will you believe
if I tell you heavenly things?
"No one has ascended into heaven,
but He who descended from heaven:
the Son of Man.
"As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness,
even so must the Son of Man be lifted up;
so that whoever believes will in Him have eternal life.

to judge the world,
but that the world might be saved through Him.
"He who believes in Him is not judged;
he who does not believe has been judged already,
because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.
"This is the judgment,
that the Light has come into the world,
and men loved the darkness
rather than the Light,
for their deeds were evil.
"For everyone who does evil hates the Light,
and does not come to the Light
for fear that his deeds will be exposed.
"But he who practices the truth comes to the Light,
so that his deeds may be manifested as having been wrought in God."
