Three simple numbers and 26 words from the Book of John are one of the most famous passages of Scripture in the Bible. And in a dark world where numbers such as 9/11 can dredge up feelings of despair, 3:16 becomes a set of numbers that offer hope. When beloved pastor and prolific author Max Lucado realized that Palm Sunday 2008 would bear the same three numbers on the calendar as the "Hope Diamond" of Scripture, he began a massive effort to spread its message to millions through a word-by-word study of John 3:16 in his book 3:16 The Numbers of Hope. As word of this simple, yet powerful resource spread, LifeWay and others came alongside to develop companion pieces ranging from curriculum to devotions to this inspiring musical with the same title.

This live worship experience is led by Travis Cottrell and includes narrations from Max Lucado's book, adapted for presentation by Mike Harland. Each song was carefully selected to continue the theme of hope that comes from understanding the extent of our Savior's love for us. This beautiful mix of Easter and non-seasonal songs is perfect for worship any time of the year. Your congregation will want to sing along to the What a Friend Medley, which includes classic hymns, and your choir will love singing this powerful message from a Scripture that brings hope to the world.

TITLES:Overture / Hosanna (Praise Is Rising) / Salvation Is Here / Out of Ashes / The Only One and Only / In Him / Born Again / What a Friend (Hymn Medley) includes: Jesus, What a Friend for Sinners; Man of Sorrows,What a Name; and I Stand Amazed in the Presence / Jesus Saves / Come to the Cross / Glorious
