The Gospel in Miniature

A Lutheran Guide for Sharing the Good News of Christ Based on the Pattern of John 3:16

by Rev. Robert L. Forsberg

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have Eternal Life." (John 3:16)

Martin Luther once called John 3:16: “The Gospel in Miniature,” saying that the very heart of Scripture and the message of Christ is found in this passage. This booklet uses John 3:16 as a biblical pattern to use in faith conversations that is simple enough to remember and can serve as a helpful tool for Christians to share their faith in Christ with others.

Written from a Lutheran faith-perspective, this booklet gives some practical advice on how believers can engage in the task of one-to-one evangelism. Combining the message of salvation in Christ with one’s own personal witness, the booklet provides a basic pattern and example, along with prayers and texts from Scripture, helping readers feel more comfortable and prepared to take up the call to be “ambassadors for Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:20) in their everyday life.

(5.5'' x 8.5'' booklet; 23 pages)


About the Lutheran Evangelism Initiative


"Jesus saw Levi the son of Alphaeus sitting at the tax booth, and he said to him, 'Follow me.' And he rose and followed him" (Mark 2:14).

The Lutheran Evangelism Initiative (LEVI) is a joint effort of congregations and organizations that are committed to proclaiming the message of salvation in Christ, and to the calling that Christ has given in the Great Commission to “make disciples of all nations” (Matthew 28:19). In particular, the initiative hopes to provide strategies, resources and encouragement for Lutheran Christians to live out their calling as “ambassadors for Christ” (2 Corinthians 5:20).
