Born Again and Again and Again: Reincarnation in Christianity

“Many ideas compatible with reincarnation appear in the Bible. Reincarnation assumes that we are immortal beings. Jesus speaking to the Jews in the Temple of Jerusalem said, "Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?" (John 10:34). Reincarnation also presupposes we are bound by karmic laws. Biblical scriptures tell us that those who live by the sword die by the sword (Matt 26:52) and that we will reap what we sow (Gal 6:7). Paul taught that each seed gets its own body (1 Cor 15:38). Our thoughts are seeds, and our actions are seeds for more actions — it could take countless eons for them to come to fruition, to get their own bodies — and it could take many rebirths to work out all the effects of causes we set in motion.....”

John 10:34
This passage references the concept that we are each God individualized. We are each as a spark from the eternal flame which is God and is perpetually sustained by the Creator of all.
