John 3: 1-36 – Who is Nicodemus?

Nicodemus was a Pharisee and a ruler of the Jews. The name “Nicodemus” is Greek in origin but had its equivalent among the Jews namely “Naqdimon”. The word means, “Conqueror of the people”. He belongs to one of the religious sects of Jews, that is, Pharisees. Their representatives were part of the supreme Jewish Council (Sanhedrin). When he is called a “ruler of Jews”, he is to be identified in all probability as the member of the Sanhedrin. Surely, he was a teacher as well.
