CHRISTIANITY ACCORDING TO PARALLEL VERSES FROM JESUS TO THE APOSTLE JOHN
If we examine Christianity as taught by Jesus to the apostle John, we see a remarkable vision of God’s will for humanity. This Bibles study takes us into the life of Christ, where we find love, compassion, grace, mercy, healing, and miracles. Christianity is a religion teaching conversion and salvation as our human destiny and God’s will for humanity.
When we study Christianity as taught by the early Church, we find a focus on good thoughts, good words, and good deeds. So let’s examine this comparison of the parallel 3:16’s of some of the apostle John’s writings. These scriptures teach vital creeds of Christian faith concerning the will of God in our daily lives. As a result, these teachings of Christ constitute a portion of our daily bread.
JOHN 3:16 + 1 JOHN 3:16
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
— THE GOSPEL ACCORDING TO SAINT JOHN 3:16
Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.
— 1 JOHN 3:16
