Ok so you have spark (meaning you've pulled a plug and have seen it right ?).
And it turns over when you crank it.
Next I would make sure that there's no vacuum leaks redily evident ,, My car often won't start if the hose that connects the wastegate to the intercooler is off ( a common one).

The next thing I'd do is remove the air filter so you can push the throttle metering plate down That will start the pumps and essentially "prime" the system. Do that for a few seconds and see if it starts.. If not, check a spark plug it should be wet from gas,,

99.9% of the time it's either gas or spark..
