Nicodemus

Additional Links

Nicode'mus. (conqueror of the people). A Pharisee, a ruler of the Jews and a teacher of Israel, John 3:1; John 3:10, whose secret visit to our Lord was the occasion of the discourse, recorded only by St. John. In Nicodemus, a noble candor and a simple love of truth shine out, in the midst of hesitation and fear of man. He finally became a follower of Christ, and came with Joseph, of Arimathaea, to take down and embalm the body of Jesus.
