God did not condemn the world (Jn 3:17-3:17)


God did not send

The Son

Into the world,

To condemn the world.

But he sent him

In order

That the world

Might be saved

Through him.”

οὐ γὰρ ἀπέστειλεν ὁ Θεὸς τὸν Υἱὸν εἰς τὸν κόσμον ἵνα κρίνῃ τὸν κόσμον, ἀλλ’ ἵνα σωθῇ ὁ κόσμος δι’ αὐτοῦ.

John uniquely said that God (ὁ Θεὸς) did not send (οὐ γὰρ ἀπέστειλεν) his Son (τὸν Υἱὸν) into the world (εἰς τὸν κόσμον) to condemn (ἵνα κρίνῃ) the world (τὸν κόσμον), but to save the world (ἀλλ’ ἵνα σωθῇ ὁ κόσμος) through him, the Son, Jesus (δι’ αὐτοῦ).  In other words, the world was not condemned but saved through the Son of God, Jesus.  How do you save the world?
