Lesson 3���

Step 3

 

FOR GOD SO LOVED THE WORLD…

 

John 3:1-21

Key Verse: 3:16

 

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. 

 

What does verse 1 tell us about Nicodemus? What did he believe about Jesus? (2)




Read verses 3-4. What was Jesus’ reply? What does this tell us about the kingdom of God? How did Nicodemus respond? What does this show about him?




Read verses 5-8. How can a person be born again? (cf. John 1:12-13; 1Peter 1:3)




Read verse 9-13. How did Nicodemus respond the second time? Why might this have been challenging for him? 




Why was Jesus uniquely qualified to tell about God's work in this world and about heavenly things also? (11-13) What do verses 14-15 teach about God? What does God promise to those who believe?




Read verse 16. How did God love the world? How can we get eternal life and not die? 




Read verses 17-21. What was Jesus teaching Nicodemus about God? (17) Who are those who are condemned? (18) What is the verdict? (19) What does it mean to come into the light? Who does and who does not? Why?
