Nicodemus, a wealthy and powerful Pharisee, comes to
see Jesus at night to find out more about him and his teachings.
We can never be quite sure what Nicodemus gleaned from this discussion.
He seems silent (or absent) as part of the Sanhedrin during Jesus'
trial, but some accounts suggest that, after Jesus' crucifixion, it was Nicodemus
who purchased the myrrh and aloes to anoint the body (John 19:39).
Was he a follower, secret admirer, or just hedging his bet?
