Dear folks,

About the lady who wrote about the word for wind, which was misunderstood (sorry) about 2 or 3 weeks ago, we now know wind happens because of differences in air pressure between location ‘A’, and location ‘B,’ air pressure forced by the location with high pressure into the location with the low pressure. But this isn’t the only use of this word in Chapter 3 of the gospel John (one of Jesus’ disciples).

John uses both meanings in verse 6 of chapter 3. Jesus uses the other meaning for this word verse 6 (That which is born of the flesh is flesh and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit.)

In verse 8 he, Jesus, uses the meaning that the lady pointed out verse 8 (the wind bloweth where is listeth and thou (Nicodemus) hearth the sound there of but canst not tell whence it cometh and whither it goeth so is everyone that is born of the Spirit).

Jesus is much more concise in John chapter 4 verse 24 (God is Spirit and they that worship Him must worship him in spirit and in Truth).

Back in our caveman days maybe we confused these meanings. But not in the Roman empire days when Jesus walked with us. His friends were fishermen and they knew about wind. (Please read John chapter 3 verse 14-18).
