GOD SO LOVED...


Although we begin with a look at the story of Jesus, this book is based on one single verse of the Bible.  Every so often someone utters a statement that is so brief, concise, and powerful that it flames the human imagination.  It captures the heart of humankind.  Its brevity emotes power.  It portrays in a few words a vision of life that others could not duplicate even with ten thousand words.  It is so profound that when we read or hear the statement - we stop to contemplate its meaning and force.


These short, moving phrases, developed by the genius of man or the inspiration of God, inspire the human spirit. 


I have chosen in this book to write about one of these simple yet profound phrases.  It is found in the Bible and commonly known as John 3:16.  The phrase was originally written in the late 1st century AD in Greek.  It has been translated into modern English as,

For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.[1]
