To those whose faith is weakened by a fear of being rejected by those who embrace the popular notions of religion, John sums up the first part of his gospel account with three takeaways: Jesus’ initiative has not been his own. He has been sent by the Father; To believe in God is to believe in the Son and to come into the light; God passes judgment upon people according to their response to Jesus.
