Is John 3:16 The Gospel?

\John 3:16 is often referred to as \'the gospel in a nutshell\'. I believe it is one of the most mistranslated and misapplied verses in the Bible. Like most Christians, I totally misunderstood the verse. So I am warning you now that I may spoil John 3:16 for you for the rest of your life. But I hope that this book will also give you the true meaning of what is a wonderful message, and a very important one, especially for Christians.\\u009d D. Pawson
