Nicodemus is a leader. He comes at night. He plays up to Jesus. He appears to charm Jesus with flattery. What are Nicodemus' expectations? Does he come to correct or trick Jesus? Does he come as a peer to trade stories of leadership? Maybe the Pharisee is searching for how he can do some signs like Jesus does? What happens when he encounters God? How does Jesus encounter Nicodemus? Does Jesus play along? Perhaps we read of a Jesus who teaches Nicodemus that he doesn't even know what he wants. Is it the same for us?
