Nicodemus was steeped in religious tradition that was generations old. His entire life was dedicated to honouring God’s rules but instead of bringing him freedom these rules had become a stumbling block to him. No amount of law keeping, scholarship, tithing, or tradition had allowed him to see the kingdom of God. And then this self-appointed Galilean Rabbi turned up and God was with him. All the confusion and doubts, all the unmet hopes and questions birthed out of his seeking were now being illuminated by this man who had clearly come from God.
