Legacy of the Saints – New Testament

(John) Mark – Author of the Gospel of Mark, and a helper in ministry to both the Apostle Paul, and the Apostle Peter.

Luke – Author of two books in the New Testament; the Gospel of Luke and Acts.  Luke was a loyal companion and helper to the Apostle Paul.

Nicodemus –  was a Pharisee and a member of the Sanhedrin mentioned 3 times in the Gospel of John. Nicodemus went to speak with Jesus at night, and acknowledges that Jesus has to be sent from God to do the miraculous things He does.  Jesus immediately confronts Nicodemus with the truth that he “must be born again”.   This confuses the teacher of Israel and Christ further explained there was nothing anyone could to earn their salvation.  It is a work of God.  The story of Nicodemus is compelling.  Ultimately, after the Jewish leaders have crucified the Lord, Nicodemus surrenders and is converted.
