Okay, we all get it—John 3:16 is the best-known verse in the world. It's plastered on placards and faces and banners and Sunday School walls. But what does it really mean? And how do you preach it with clarity and freshness? In this week's featured sermon—What's the big deal with John 3:16?—Craig Brian Larson does a masterful job exegeting the text (even tackling God's wrath) and making John 3:16 come alive for your listeners (even if they've heard it a thousand times).
This week we also feature:
