CUT TO: EXT TEMPLE COURT A open air market place is being held in a temple court. They are selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables exchanging money. We see Nicodemus standing there admiring the business being done. Jesus walks up with his disciples. He is carrying a whip made out of cords. He drives out the merchants, sheep and cattle from the temple area. He scatters the coins of the money changers and overturns their tables.

TO: EXT TEMPLE COURT A open air market place is being held in a temple court.
They are selling cattle, sheep and doves, and others sitting at tables
exchanging money. We see Nicodemus
standing there admiring the business being done. Jesus walks up with his disciples. He is carrying a whip made
out of cords. He drives out the merchants, sheep and cattle from the temple
area. He scatters the coins of the money changers and overturns their tables.

JESUS Get these out of here! How dare you turn my Father’s house into a
market!

NICODEMUS What miraculous sign can you show us to prove your
authority to do all this?

JESUS Destroy this temple, and I will raise it
again in three days.

NICODEMUS It has taken forty-six years to build
this temple, and your are going to raise it in three days? Jesus
walks off. Nicodemus becomes infuriated.

NICODEMUS (CONT’D) This man is
dangerous, I better follow him. Nicodemus walks off following Jesus. CUT TO:

PATH TO A RIVER BANK Jesus is walking down the path toward the
river. At the river bank John the
Baptist
is baptizing people in the water. Nicodemus is following at a
distance. When John sees Jesus coming toward him he says:

JOHN Look, the
Lamb of God,
who takes away the sin of the world! This is the one I meant when I said, ‘A man
who comes after me has surpassed me because he was before me. I myself did not
know him, but the reason I came baptizing with water was that he might be
revealed to Israel.

JOHN (CONT’D) I saw the Spirit come down from heaven
as a dove and remain on him. I would not have known him, except that the one who
sent me to baptize with water
told me. ‘The man on whom you see the Spirit come down and remain is he who will
baptize with the Holy Spirit.’
I have seen and I testify that this is the Son of God.” At the top of the river
bank, Nicodemus had stood and watched. He appears to be impressed. Jesus walks
back up the path with Nicodemus following at a distance. CUT TO: EXT

PATH TO A RIVER BANK As he follows Jesus away they meet a government
official. Nicodemus thinks that the official is looking for him, so he rushes
forward. But the official goes directly to Jesus.

OFFICIAL Sir, please come down to Capernaum and heal my son, who is close to death.

JESUS Unless you people see miraculous signs and wonders, you will never
believe.

OFFICIAL Sir, come down before my child dies.

JESUS You
may go. Your son will live. The official rushes off. And Jesus continues down
the path with Nicodemus following at a distance. CUT TO: EXT
