Jesus Christ is 3:16

“The Message • The Messiah • The Mission”
“Jesus Christ is 3:16, Theme”

Upon my reading and bible studies, I believe that God revealed something to very clear to me, very complex yet so simple. I believe that this can be the beginning of a revival and the slogan will easily stick in ones mind.

This is the theme of:

The Message (2 Tim 3:16)
The Messiah (John 3:16)
The Mission (1 Tim 3:16)
Jesus Christ is 3:16

This is profound as I believe it will start a Revival (and will be very useful for teaching and Evangelism). Following is a short discussion along with benefits.

1. The wording, the names of the 2 books, and the passage numbers are so easy to remember that adults and children alike would have no
problem remembering it for instruction, and evangelism, as well as offering the ability to answer key questions to non-believers (all while trying to remember, on the spot, so many Bible book and verse combinations).

2. It is so easy to witness.

3. I believe it will be very easy to teach to children, adolescents, and adults.

4. It is very useful to be used to dispel myths concerning the Deity of Christ, (Christ being God in the flesh and not a man), the bible being God inspired (not man inspired), Christ being sent to save us, the Gentiles (non-Jews), Christ’s ascension, where he went, why he came to the earth, the purpose of the bible, the rewards for following him, and to dispel the myth that there are other ways to Heaven.

5. I again repeat, that it can be used to witness that eternal life is: only through Jesus Christ.

6. It easily shows God’s Love for the world.

7. It easily condenses so many complex Bible themes and messages into a 2 line, 3 verse, 2 book, statement, that is so simple yet so profound that it is almost beyond comprehension. (If any believer or non-believer asked a question about God, the bible, Christ, etc., it can likely be answered in this theme statement).

8. I have done further investigation, and found that it provides a excellent tool and exercise to teach so many other things about God’s word, and Jesus Christ.
