Chapter 3 {#c3}

Verse 16 {#c3v16}

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

My memory of this verse is, “For God so loved the world that he sent his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life.” “Should” makes it seem like this may happen in the future. “Shall” is an event that will take place in the future.
