John 3:16

John 3:16 is a well-known favorite verse of many.

But I wonder if you’ve ever thought about the fact that it says Jesus is the “only begotten Son of God?”

Haven’t you been begotten of God if you are a Christian?

Indeed, in the very context of that verse Nicodemus is told that to enter God’s kingdom, one must be born again. So, is He, or is He not, the only begotten Son of God?

Well, the Greek term actually means “unique, one of its kind,” not “only begotten.” That understanding clears up any mystery along those lines that may have confused you.
