Nicodemus Learns about the Facts of Life

Now there was a Pharisee named Nicodemus, a leader of the Jews. He came to Jesus by night and said to him, "Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God; for no one can do these signs that you do apart from the presence of God."

Jesus answered him, "Very truly, I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God without being born from above." Nicodemus said to him, "How can anyone be born after having grown old? Can one enter a second time into the mother's womb and be born?"

Jesus answered, "Very truly, I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God without being born of water and Spirit. What is born of the flesh is flesh, and what is born of the Spirit is spirit. Do not be astonished that I said to you, 'You must be born from above.' The wind blows where it chooses, and you hear the sound of it, but you do not know where it comes from or where it goes. So it is with everyone who is born of the Spirit." Nicodemus said to him, "How can these things be?"

Jesus answered him, "Are you a teacher of Israel, and yet you do not understand these things? "Very truly, I tell you, we speak of what we know and testify to what we have seen; yet you do not receive our testimony. If I have told you about earthly things and you do not believe, how can you believe if I tell you about heavenly things? No one has ascended into heaven except the one who descended from heaven, the Son of Man. [...]

Early Attempts at Being Born Again ...

We can be a lot like Nicodemus at times. The Gospel message is there, simple as can be, yet so hard to put into practice ... so hard to integrate the spirit of it into our lives! Perhaps we need to be born of the spirit - continually!

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?
