Max Lucado 3:16 – The Numbers of Hope: February 23, 2016

John Newton, who set faith to music in “Amazing Grace,” loved this barrier-breaking pronoun [whoever].  He said, “If I read ‘God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that when John Newton believed he should have everlasting life,’ I should say, perhaps, there is some other John Newton; but ‘whosoever’ means this John Newton and that John Newton, and everybody else, whatever his name may be.”
