The question is in reference to John 3:3. So what happens when someone is born again or born from above? What changes take place on behalf of the believer, and in the believer? I'll begin by mentioning a few things and leave the definitions for discussion [please add to the list]: regeneration renewal atonement to the Father adoption as sons: from where to where? circumcision: of the physical body from the rest of his being? forgiveness cleansing promises dying with Christ, raised with Christ - what is this?
