~ Dr. John Hlychho

1. NIKODEMA HI TUNGE?

Nikodema chungchang hi Bible-ah a inziak tlêm hle a, a inziak chhun erawh a pawimawh ngang thung. Nikodema hming hi Bible-ah vawi 5 a chuang a, a chanchin leh thiltih hrang hrang lanna erawh vawi 3 chiah a ni thung (cf. John 3:1,4,9,7:50,19:39).
Lal Isua leh Nikodema
Nikodema tih hi Grk.nik-od’-ay-mos (Eng. nicodemus) aţanga lâk a ni a, “mipuite ngamtu” (conqueror of the people or victorious among his people) tihna a ni. Bible-a a chanchin kan hmuh leh history aţanga alan dânin Pharisai, Sanhedrin member, thiltithei leh hausa tak a ni (cf. John 3:1,10, 19:39).

Nikodema chanchin hian “Pharisai zawng zawng hi adera nung an ni vek kher lo” tih a târlang nghal awm e (pharisees were not as a whole so hypocritical as people think).

2. ZÂNAH KHER KHER ISUA HMU TURIN A KAL?!
Nikodema’n zânah kher kher Lal Isua hmu tura a kal hi thil mak tak a ni a, zawhna a ti tam hle. A chhan ber chu, Judate ngaihdânah chuan Setana’n zânah nasa takin hna a thawk ţhin niin an ngai a, hemi avang hian Juda Rabbi-te hi zânah an chhuak-vâk thiang lo tluk a ni.

(1). Scholar ţhenkhat chuan, Nikodema’n zân hun kher kher a chuhna chhan hi Judate leh a Pharisai ţhiante hriat a hlauh vang niin an ngai thung.

(2). Ţhenkhat chuan, a thil hriat duh-te hi hun duh rei chi a ni a, chhûnah hun a nei lova, Lal Isua pawhin chhûnah chuan mimal kawmna hun a nei lo tih a hria a, zân reh hi a rawn chuh niin alang, an ti ve thung.
A dik ber kan hre lova, mahse, a pawmawm ve ve khawp mai.

3. ZAWHNA LEH CHHÂNNA INTU LO CHU…!
Nikodema thil hriat duh ber hi a Zawhna aţang hian a chiang hle a, “Rabbi, Pathian hnên ata Zirtirtua lo kal i ni tih ka hria; Pathian an chunga a awm loh chuan heng thilmak i tih ang hi tuma’n an ti thei lo vang” (3:2).

Nikodema hian Lal Isua THILMAK TIH (MIRACLES)-te a lo hria a, Zâwlnei ropui leh thiltithei tak a ni ngei tih a pawm hmiah a (a Juda-puite ngaihdân pawh a ni tel a ni tih alang).
Zâwlnei ropui nia a hriat chu kawm chian a châk a, hriat-chian lehzual a duh tih alang a ni. Mahse, Lal Isua hian Nikodema hriat duh, rilruleh a tum (inquiry & reasoning & motives) chu chhâng ta lovin, a Subject a thlâk sak hmiah! Nikodema mamawh ber leh damchhan zâwk Chhânna (unexpected answer to his most eternal spiritual needs) chu a hlui ta zâwk a ni!

Lal Isua chuan, “Tih tak meuhvin, tih tak meuhvin ka hrilh a che, mi tupawh an pian thar loh chuan Pathian ram an hmu thei lo vang” (3:3) tiin, Nikodema Damchhan leh a Mamawh ber chu Pianthar a ni tih a hrilh ta a ni. Nikodema hian mak a ti êm êm a, a tum loh khânah a chhuak tih a hria a, a buai nghal map tih a hnu-a a zawhna-te hian a tichiang.

4. TUI-AH LEH THLARAUVA A PIAN LOH CHUAN…
Lal Isua’n “Piantharna” thu a sawi hi Greek. gennêthê anôthen a ni a, hei hian “chunglam aţanga hrin or piang” (born from above) tihna a kâwk a. Miin Lal Isua ring a, Lal leh Chhandamtu-a a pawm veleh, chumi chu Pathian faa chhiar niin, Thilsiamthar (new creation) a lo ni ta a ni (cf. 2Kor.5:17; 1Pet. 2:2). Thim aţanga ênga chhuahna (an emergence from darkness to light) ang pawhin a sawi theih bawk (1Pet.2:9).

A Greek ţawng hi chuan, piannawna lam aiin, “chunglam aţanga tih-danglamna leh hriatpuina” (Greek. anṑthen, new birth & recognition from above, cf. 3:31, 19:11,23, Jak.1:17, 3:15,17) hi sawi a tum ber niin alang.

Chunglam Pathian hriatpui tlâk nih a duh tak tak chuan, Gentile mi, Juda Saphûn chunga Judate’n an thil beisei ang chiah chiah kha Nikodema hian a tih ve a ngai dâwn ta tlat mai! Miin Juda Saphûn nih a duh chuan, chumi chu an bualfai phawt a, thawmhnaw thar an hâk-tir a, Juda serh leh sâng, dân leh hrai zawng zawng zâwm turin an lâwm lut ta ţhin a ni.
