John 3:1-17

Christmas means salvation. Nicodemus misunderstood the first part of his conversation with Jesus. But by the time they got to the end of their evening meeting, Nicodemus understood why Jesus came. The Son of God came that we might have eternal life.

Some interpreters suggest the actual words of Jesus end at 3:15, and that 3:17-21 are John’s comments. Either way, the message remains unchanged and very clear. Jesus saves and that’s what Christmas is all about.
