First off, I'm just now starting the journey of Bible arcing, so I'm sharing this more for guidance and input than I am to offer anything definitive. The first thing that was obvious to me was that the propositions "that whoever believes in him should not perish" and "but have eternal life" form a Negative/Postive . Taking care of that relationship, I wanted to tackle the rest of verse 16. I orginally had "that he gave his only Son," labeled as an Inference , but I wasn't comfortable with that. I landed on (at least for the time being) on labeling "For God so loved the world," (or, "For God loved the world in this way") as an Idea and "that he gave his only Son," as an Explanation . That led to my labeling "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son," as an Action and "that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life." as a Purpose . I didn't interpret verse 17 in as complex a manner as the man in the "watch over our shoulder" video. Perhaps that's because he is well-versed in the original language. I kept "For Gid did not send his Son into the world" and "to condemn the world," as one proposition mainly because I don't see the latter standing on its own without the former. So that allowed me to see a Negative/Positive relationship between that proposition and "but in order that the world might be saved through him." To wrap it all up, I saw verse 17 as a further Explanation of the Idea expressed in verse 16. Comments and guidance will be appreciated. Thanks!
