John Trapp 1601-1669, Puritan Commentator on John 3:16

October 24, 2008


Verse 16. God so loved the world,] This is a sic without a sicut, there being nothing in nature wherewith to parallel it. The world, that is, all mankind fallen in Adam. This the Apostle fitly calls God’s Philanthropy, Tit. 3.4. it being a sweet favor to the whole kind of us, that any be saved by Christ.
