A-Z: Famous stories from the Bible: Jesus and Nicodemus


Jesus and NicodemusNicodemus was a leading Jewish rabbi who comes to ask questions of Jesus 'by night'. Jesus informs Nicodemus that he needs to be born again. This account contains: ' The central teaching that people seeking God have to start seeing things in an entirely new light. Jesus is the one charged by God to reveal spiritual truths in a way that Nicodemus has no inkling of, and above all, to save the world. ' One of the most quoted verses of the Bible: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16 TNIV) In a telling detail later in his gospel, John tells us that it was Nicodemus who helped Joseph of Arimathaea to bury the body of Jesus with a mixture of myrrh and aloes.
