"No one has ever gone into heaven except the one
who came from heaven--the Son of Man. Just as Moses lifted up the
snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, that
everyone who believes in him may have eternal life.
"For God so
loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever
believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God
did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save
the world through him."
