This commentary dwells on the theological and pastoral wisdom of the three epistles of John. Arguing for original authorship by John the beloved disciple and last living apostle, it demonstrates that the epistles were generally well received by the early church. Based on the long oral ministry of John in Asia Minor, the brief letters assume familiarity with the faith and take the form of a general epistle in 1 John, an introductory letter in 2 John, and a situation-specific, personal and pastoral letter in 3 John, which deals with the conduct of an errant church leader. In this original translation, you’ll find John’s urging to rightly confess the faith in these the latter days.
