This study provides a resource to help Christians make sense of the New Testament through a study of its twenty-seven
chapter three, verse sixteen (3:16) entries.
Seeing "John 3:16" today has become a common occurrence. That combination of numbers is therefore associated by many with the Bible. Somehow "3" and "16" seem to go together and that have entered the collective consciousness of our culture. In "3:16-Your Key to Understanding the New Testament," author S. Dana Merrill provides a simple resource to help readers, students, and seekers, to gain a better grasp of the "Big Picture" of the New Testament.
You will begin with Matthew 3:16 and continue with each 3:16 in the other twenty-six New Testament books. From the vantage point of that book's 3:16, Merrill presents the overarching theme, what it says, and what it means, discusses how it applies to today's world (group discussion questions included), and shares how it affected his life.
Sermon - 14 minutes; heart-warming story - 2 minutes; poem - 30 seconds; drama - 3.5 minutes; video clip - 48 seconds. Learning God's Word - a lifetime. Start here, with every 3:16 in the New Testament.
