Daily Bible Verse - 7/24/2007 - John 3:18 : Many Editions > Same Daily Verse

Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. (NIV)

He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth not is condemned already, because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (KJV)

He who believes in Him is not judged; he who does not believe has been judged already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God. (NASB)

John 3:18

3:18 believed in the name. This phrase (lit. "to believe into the name") means more than mere intellectual assent to the claims of the gospel. It includes trust and commitment to Christ as Lord and Savior which results in receiving a new nature (v. 7) which produces a change in heart and obedience to the Lord (see notes on 2:23-25).

Did you know?

Titles of Jesus reflect something significant of His person and/or work.

The name Jesus (which is identical with Joshua and means "God is Savior") emphasizes His role as the Savior of His people (Matt. 1:21).

Christ is the New Testament equivalent of Messiah, a Hebrew word meaning "anointed one" (cf. Acts 4:27; 10:38). This title emphasized that Jesus was divinely appointed to His mission, that He had an official relationship to God the Father-that is, He had a job to do and a role to discharge at the Father's appointing.

Son of Man was the title used almost exclusively by Jesus Himself (cf. Matt. 9:6; 10:23; 11:19). Some feel He used it because it most clearly distinguished His Messiahship from the erroneous ideas of His time.

The name Son of God was also applied to Jesus in an official or messianic sense (cf. Matt. 4:3, 6; 16:16; Luke 22:70; John 1:49). It emphasized that He was a Person of the triune Godhead, supernaturally born as a human being.

Lord was alternately applied to Jesus as a simple title (somewhat like "Mr."), a title of authority or ownership, or (sometimes) an indication of His equality with God (e.g., Mark 12:36-37; Luke 2:11; Matt. 7:22).
