Fall Group Bible Study

“3:16 The Numbers of Hope” – by Max Lucado


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

Author Max Lucado describes the primacy of this verse for our faith and invites a wide audience to participate, “This sentence is prolific in our language and culture. But its words are more than a good saying, a favorite memory verse, or a catchy lyric. John 3:16 is the thesis of the New Testament. The climax of a theological moment. It is the Hope Diamond of the Bible… If you know nothing of the Bible, start here. If you know everything about the Bible, return here. We all need the reminder. The heart of the human problem is the heart of the human. And God’s treatment is prescribed in John 3:16.”

This is a wonderful book and video study that aligns beautifully with our new First Pres Caldwell mission statement as it specifically addresses our mission to “Shine God’s Light” by “KNOWing Christ”.

Come study with us as we dig deeper into the riches of this verse about the Who and Why of Jesus Christ for us – which Max highlights as “the thesis of the New Testament.”
