Nicodemus was a teacher for the Jew's he went and visited Jesus at night because he was afraid of what people might think of him after he was just against Christ earlier. When he got in side of Jesus house Nicodemus said, "We surely know that you came from God because if you didn't then you would not have been able to do your miracles." Then after that statement Jesus replied "If you want to see the kingdom of heaven then you must be a born again Christian." Nicodemus did not quite understand so the teacher of the Jews and Christ talked about what you needed to do to be a born again Christian and Nicodemus did it. This was Nicodemus first show up in Christ life.(John 3)

The second great event Nicodemus was in with Christ was when Christ was crucified. After everyone had left, Christ's lifeless body was left nailed vilontily to the cross. Nicodemus and Joseph of Arimathea love Jesus so much that they had the honor of taking down Jesus and carrying him to his grave. Joseph of Arimathea gave Jesus this place because it was a nice little hill close to the crucification site. The two that fell in Christ love carried him to the tomb and wrapped him in linen cloth all around. To seal the tomb they rolled a stone that weight enough that no one man cloud move it by himself. The women would come on Sundays with oils and spices for his body. This was another major thing in Nicodemus life. (Matt. 27:57-66, Mark 15:42-47, Luke 23:50-56, John 19:38-42)
