Poison and Its Remedy

James Alison reflects on how Jesus’ death undoes the world of sacrifice from within [John 3:14-21].


  • Is Jesus’ death really a sacrifice?
  • How did Jesus’ death undo our whole world of judgment and condemnation built on sacrifice?
  • The little word “so” in the most famous verse in the Bible has two possible meanings. “For God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son”. Or “For God loved the world in this way: that he gave his only Son”. Which do you think John meant, and why?

This post needs your thoughts.
