THE BRONZE SERPENT
If I were to ask you to quote John 3:16, I am pretty sure that most of you would be able to do it. For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. But if I ask you, ‘What are the two verses that come before John 3:16,’ I am not sure that the response will be as quick. Have you ever noticed the words that precede the well-known John 3:16? In other words, what is the context of John 3:16?
