"Then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory" (I Cor. 15:54)—The reference is to Isaiah 25:8, where we find the words: "He will swallow up death in victory." It may be observed that in the Old Testament passage, the phrase rendered "in victory" in our Common Version can also mean "for ever." Hence the rendering of the American Standard Version: "He hath swallowed up death for ever."
"Nicodemus, a ruler of the Jews" (John 3:1)—Dr. Westcott feels that this phrase suggests definitely that Nicodemus was a member of the famed Jewish council of the Sanhedrin, the duties of which were primarily judicial in character. Other authorities, however, take the phrase in a more general sense. Thus Goodspeed suggests: "a leader among the Jews;" while Moffatt renders: " ... who belonged to the Jewish authorities."
