3:16 For this is the way God loved the world: He gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world should be saved through him. The Prologue to the Gospel1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was fully God.
