Nicodemus was a New Testament intellectual, both a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin. An older man, he was clearly someone with a thorough, in-depth knowledge of Jewish law and religious practise. And yet, from his meeting with Jesus as told in John 3, he was open to and desired to know more about the Son of God. Surely every Christian knows that famous, life-changing verse, John 3:16 - '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' - but none of us except Nicodemus has actually heard it spoken directly by Jesus! Andy Sparkes sets the context for Jesus' famous meeting with Nicodemus, explaining why he was the first establishment figure to recognise and then seek the divine Jesus, and describes how we can learn much from this Pharisee's attitude.
