Far as the Curse is Found
John 3:16 is the most famous passage in all of Scripture. It has become so common that we might think we have tapped all of its potential. And yet there is always more. Scripture has a way of finding more registers in which to speak. It has a way of revealing more layers that have gone unnoticed. And this morning, we take a close look at John 3:14—where Jesus reminds us of Moses hoisting a bronze serpent onto a stick to save Israel—in order to take a fresh look at John 3:16—where Jesus himself is hoisted up on a cross that he might save the world.
