The people knew Jesus and so were skeptical of Him, Jesus declares He is from God, whom they do not know. The Jews seek to take Him but His hour is not yet. He tells them He will go of His own accord soon to a place where they cannot find Him. They are confused by this, Jesus tells them that those that are satisfied by Him will themselves become channels of spiritual refreshment for others. Jesus talks of the Holy Spirit who is yet to come and Nicodemus shows curiosity towards Him.
