John chapter 3 , verse 16 of the Gospel of John of the New Testament is one of the most widely quoted verses from the Bible and has been called the most famous Bible verse. For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish, but have everlasting life. In Exodus , the Israelites as a people are called "my firstborn son" by God using the singular form. In John, the focus shifts to the person of Jesus as representative of that title. The verse is part of the New Testament narrative in the third chapter of John in the discussion at Jerusalem between Jesus and Nicodemus , who is called a "ruler of the Jews". A representative sample of published Bible translations renders it as follows. It is worth noting that since this is perhaps the best-known verse, many translations have tried to maintain a traditional rendering.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. Luke Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Romans But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. John ,18 And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth…. Genesis And he said, Lay not thine hand upon the lad, neither do thou any thing unto him: for now I know that thou fearest God, seeing thou hast not withheld thy son, thine only son from me.
