Now there was a man of the Pharisees, named Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews;
"Look, He is speaking publicly, and they are saying nothing to Him. The rulers do not really know that this is the Christ, do they?
"No one of the rulers or Pharisees has believed in Him, has he?
"Now judgment is upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be cast out.
Nevertheless many even of the rulers believed in Him, but because of the Pharisees they were not confessing Him, for fear that they would be put out of the synagogue;
"I will not speak much more with you, for the ruler of the world is coming, and he has nothing in Me;
and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world has been judged.
