the new birth scandal

JC Ryle in Expository Thoughts on the Gospels: John 1.1-10.9 ...

It is a noteworthy and striking fact that no doctrine has excited such surprise in every age of the Church and has called forth so much opposition from the great and learned as this very doctrine of the new birth.
