Interesting. Thank you. sorry, but I can't dive deeper into it at the moment. This matter seems to be quite deep and complicated, but the parallels in your answer seem to make it simple and, I agree, they are really breathtaking!

"... in our day and time the meaning is clearly 'regeneration' but in Nicodemus's time no such word existed-therefore Nicodemus's response" - Ah, I see. I got it. Thank you.

2) In fact, if we insist that "being born again" must be only taken figuratively, than we challenge the genuineness of the fact that the believers were really born of God, and, thus, go against John 1:13 "Which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God" spoken earlier by the same author in the same piece of writing.

1) Thanks for your answer, except I don't understand why "being born again" must be understood figuratively. To me, "to be born" means "to be given a life" or "to receive life", not "to come out of mother's womb" as Nicodemus thought. Therefore, "to be born again" or "to be born of God" is a phrase that should really be taken literally, that is "to be given the very life of God" or "to receive the life of God" in the very literal sense.

@DanAndrews - I'll add the Scriptures that I am referring to in my question.

@hannes - My point in the last sentence is this (sorry if I've expressed my thought vaguely): Judas might've thought that elders and high-priests would only threaten Jesus and make Him stop spreading His teaching, but not kill Him. In other words, they might've hidden away from Judas their actual intention to finally kill Jesus. However, when Judas saw that Jesus was wrongfully condemned of blasphemy in the Sanhedrin, he understood that now there was no way for Jesus to escape from death, thus, he felt extremely guilty and killed himself. This goes along with Matthew 27:3-5.
