He that cometh from above is above all: he that is of the earth is earthly, and speaketh of the earth: he that cometh from heaven is above all.

New Defender's Study Bible Notes

3:31 cometh from above. Since there is no contextual break after John 3:30, it is reasonable to infer that the testimony of John the Baptist continues through John 3:36. These words demonstrate still further the remarkable understanding he had concerning the person and work of Jesus Christ. In John 3:31, the phrase “from above” is the same Greek word as “again” in John 3:3. Thus to be “born again” is to be born “from above.”
