Three simple numbers and 26 words from the Book of John are one of the most famous passages of Scripture in the Bible. And in a dark world where numbers such as 9/11 can dredge up feelings of despair, 3:16 becomes a set of numbers that offer hope. When beloved pastor and prolific author Max Lucado realized that Palm Sunday 2008 would bear the same three numbers on the calendar as the "Hope Diamond" of Scripture, he began a massive effort to spread its message to millions through a word-by-word study of John 3:16 in his book 3:16 The Numbers of Hope. As word of this simple, yet powerful resource spread, LifeWay and others came alongside to develop companion pieces ranging from curriculum to devotions to this inspiring musical with the same title.
