John 3:14-19 New International Version

14  Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up,[1] 15  that everyone who believes may have eternal life in him."[2]

God So Loved the World

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. 17  For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18  Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because they have not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. 19  This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but people loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil.


[1] 3:14 The Greek for "lifted up" also means "exalted" .
