Nicodemus was wowed by Jesus, although perhaps that should not be a surprise. He is a Pharisee, and Pharisees were known for being attracted by ‘bling’. They had vision for fancy things that carried their own sense of importance. Like getting the most important seat at the table, perhaps at the right-hand side of the favoured guest, Rabbi or teacher. Or the wearing of long robes in public, the longer and fancier the better. Or wearing big boxes on their heads with bible tracts to show the world how seriously the Scriptures were being taken. Nothing like having the word of God on your mind constantly!
