Nicodemus, or (Nikodemos), is made up of two parts: the first, nike, which indicates triumph, and the second, demos, which denotes people or ordinary people. As a result, his name might signify people's win or people's winner.
Nicodemus speaks and acts bolder for Christ every time he is referenced in the Bible. In John 3, he only comes to Jesus discreetly to obtain knowledge, yet in John 7, Nicodemus defends Jesus. Finally, in John 19, Nicodemus is no longer scared by the Pharisees, and he takes direct action to assist in the crucifixion of Jesus. The acts and responses of Nicodemus to Jesus are outlined below.
Nicodemus is first mentioned in the Bible in John chapter 3, when he expresses his desire to learn more about Jesus and His teachings. Rabbi, we know that you are a teacher who has come from God, Nicodemus compliments Jesus as an introduction. No one could do the signs you are performing unless God was with him, John 3:2. Jesus dismisses his praise and moves the focus away from Himself and on Nicodemus and his spiritual state. Nicodemus is then told by Jesus that he must be born a new.
