Nicodemus-An Encounter

Joshua Johnson

Abstract


This paper offers an exegesis and interpretation of John 3:1-15, Jesus' encounter with Nicodemus, one of the gospel's most memorable characters. Central to this discussion will be the significance of the symbol of rebirth. Engaging the text using traditional approaches and aided by philosophical hermeneutics, we shall see that the Nicodemus story offers the reader a reconfiguration of reality as Nicodemus is invited to be born again by receiving Jesus.
