**when Joseph of Arimathea was burying the crucified Christ, Nicodemus accompanied him and supplied the spices to be wrapped with the body (John 19:39-42).**

Not many remember this little fact.

A Gospel of Nicodemus appeared a couple hundred years after the death of Jesus, but its authenticity is questionable and it didn't make it into the Canon. Nonetheless, you can read it here.

I have always wondered what the rest of Nicodemus’s life was like. In showing up to claim Jesus’s body, he essentially put his cards on the table.
