Does regeneration precede faith?

Does regeneration precede faith? What does it mean to be a slave to sin? How does Jesus’ encounter with Nicodemus help us understand regeneration as a monergistic act of God? What does the birth metaphor teach us about the Spirit’s power to create new life? How then are we to understand the role of faith?

In this new Credo Video, Dr. Matthew Barrett discusses man’s sinful state, the metaphor of birth, and the Spirit’s work of regeneration. Watch other videos like this one on the Credo Video page.
