NLT 11 I assure you, we tell you what we know and have seen, and yet you won’t believe our testimony. NIV 11 I tell you the truth, we speak of what we know, and we testify to what we have seen, but still you people do not accept our testimony. NLT 12 But if you don’t believe me when I tell you about earthly things, how can you possibly believe if I tell you about heavenly things? NIV 12 I have spoken to you of earthly things and you do not believe; how then will you believe if I speak of heavenly things? NLT 13 No one has ever gone to heaven and returned. But the Son of Man3:13 Some manuscripts add who lives in heaven. “Son of Man” is a title Jesus used for himself. has come down from heaven. NIV 13 No one has ever gone into heaven except the one who came from heaven--the Son of Man. NLT 14 And as Moses lifted up the bronze snake on a pole in the wilderness, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, NIV 14 Just as Moses lifted up the snake in the desert, so the Son of Man must be lifted up, NLT 15 so that everyone who believes in him will have eternal life.3:15 Or everyone who believes will have eternal life in him.

But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son. NIV 18 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. NLT 19 And the judgment is based on this fact: God’s light came into the world, but people loved the darkness more than the light, for their actions were evil. NIV 19 This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. NLT 20 All who do evil hate the light and refuse to go near it for fear their sins will be exposed.
