It is fascinating to see the variety of subject matter and foundational Scriptural teachings we discover when we do a survey of the 3:16's of the Bible. Genesis 3:16 is a part of God's judgment for original sin, while John 3:16 is God's answer for man's sin, and Revelation 3:16 is God's call to fully embrace His love. From Genesis to Revelation the 3:16's are a wonderful picture into the heart, nature and plan of God for mankind. In this teaching series, Lead Pastor Kerry Brown will walk through the New Testament 3:16's.
