Jesus Brings Light to the World
John 3: 14 - 21
This passage is a continuation of Jesus' conversation with Nicodemus, a member of the Sanhedrin.
Jesus gives us a wonderful image of lifting our eyes up to him and past him to God the Father in heaven, just as the Israelites lifted their eyes to the bronze snake and then looked beyond it to God.
John 3:16 is the core statement of all Christians' belief in God.
1. What will everyone who has faith in Jesus receive?
[Everyone who has faith in Jesus will receive eternal life.]
2. Did God send his Son into the world to condemn the world?
[No, God sent his Son into the world not to condemn the world, but to save the world.]
3. Why do people who do bad things hate the light?
[People who do bad things hate the light because people can see what they have done.]
4. Where do goodness and truth come from?
[Goodness and truth come from God.]
