Jesus’ teaching concerning baptism When Nicodemus came to Jesus one night asking Him about salvation, Jesus answered in John 3:5 “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the kingdom of God.” Most Bible scholars agree that Jesus is referring to baptism here.

... be willing to help out with my interviews. We talked for a while about the information I already had and she offered me an incident that happened at the high school when she was substitute teaching.

... What I Did Not Know From this research project I wanted to learn more about the I-Search paper, what resources (if any) existed on the internet, and what successes or failures teachers encountered when teaching the I-Search. I had some familiarity with the term "I-Search," but since I do not read professional journals as much as I should read them I did not know what it was and ... what extent teachers were using this type of writing.

... the new generation of workers do not possess the basic skills to perform the job. It would appear that American students are not learning as much as their parents did.
