Evangelical Group Scores With 'John 3:16' Ad During Broncos-Patriots Game
An evangelical Christian group says it is pleased at the
outpouring of encouraging feedback it has received for its "John
3:16" television commercial, which aired during the Denver
Broncos-New England Patriots game last Saturday night.
"It's overwhelmingly positive through a variety of channels --
social media, our Web site, phone calls," said Gary Schneeberger,
vice president of media relations at the Colorado Springs-based
Focus on the Family.
During the commercial, a group of small children recite the
biblical passage from John 3:16 - "For God so loved the world, that
He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him will not
perish but will have eternal life.
