A-Z: Books of the Bible: 3 John


NT epistle (letter)


1, 2 and 3 John: 1 John is similar in content to John's Gospel. The writer stresses that to know God is to obey him. Right living is characterised by love and teachers are to be judged by their recognition of Jesus as the Christ. 2 John is addressed to the 'elect lady' which is probably a reference to the church and again stresses the 'law of love'. 3 John is a rather obscure letter addressed to an elder, Gaius, who is commended for his work and warned against a certain Diotrephes who is behaving in a very highhanded manner.
