John 3: 1-36 – Mission of Father and Son

“God so loved the world, that God gave his only Son…”. These words express the essence of God’s self-revealing, pure, self-giving love in the whole history of salvation beginning from creation. It is the sum total of hundreds of texts in various books, especially prophets verbalizing the infinite love of God. The word used for love in Greek is “agapan” as different from philein or eros. Agape refers to unconditional self-offering love revealed in commitment and action.
