      This Pillar commentary seeks to clearly explain the meaning of John's letters to teachers, pastors, and general readers looking for a reliable resource for personal study. Colin Kruse introduces the important issues involved in interpreting the Johannine letters, gives verse-by-verse comments, and provides extensive discussion of John's major theological themes, including the real humanity of /5(2). First John is difficult to outline because its themes recur throughout the letter and because transitional verses may be placed either with the preceding or the following sections (1 John ; 1 John ). Outlines with varying numbers of divisions have been suggested for 1John.

    INTRODUCTION TO 1 JOHN. UNIQUENESS OF THE BOOK. A. The book of 1 John is not a personal letter nor a letter written to one church as much as it is an "Impassioned Office Memo from Headquarters" (corporate letter). 1. It has no traditional introduction (from whom, to whom). 2. It has no personal greetings or closing message. B. The book of 1 st John is a General Epistle (Apostolic Letter). It is written by the Disciple/Apostle John around A.D. probably from Ephesus. The key personalities are the Apostles Peter and Paul. Its purpose was to warn about the increasing threat of false teachings and to reassure Christians of their faith and love in Jesus Christ.

    Unlike most NT letters, 1 John does not tell us who its author is. The earliest identification of him comes from the church fathers: Irenaeus (c. a.d. –), Clement of Alexandria (c. –), Tertullian (c. –) and Origen (c. –) all designated the writer as the apostle John. John’s next two letters, however, are written to specific audiences. In addition to this one, John wrote two other New Testament letters, a Gospel, and possibly the prophetic book of Revelation. He was a leader in the early church, and he probably wrote his documents after most of the other New Testament books were already written.

First Epistle of John - Wikipedia. The Letters of John and Abigail Adams provides an insightful record of American life before, during, and after the Revolution; the letters also reveal the intellectually and emotionally fulfilling relationship between John and Abigail that lasted fifty-four years and withstood historical upheavals, long periods apart, and personal tragedies.

Covering key moments in American history - the Continental Congress, the drafting of the Declaration of Independence, the Revolutionary War Cited by: 7. Letters of John, three New Testament writings, all composed sometime around ad and traditionally attributed to John the Evangelist, son of Zebedee and disciple of Jesus.

He explores the theme of love as central to God's nature and thus as the defining characteristic of those who follow him/5. John and Abigail are very poetic at times and these letters provide some behind the scenes of the American Revolution.

These letters help to display their mutual respect for each other and remind us the founders were real people with everyday problems too/5(37). The Letters of 1, 2 & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth.

Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness/5().

A lot of study has been given to the structure of John's Letters. It's clear that 2 John and 3 John are in traditional epistle format, with an identification of the author, address, blessing, and conclusion with personal matters and greetings.

However, 1 John is clearly different. The letters by John Keats, in a way, are more near to his personality than his poems. He revealed himself to his friends, to his family and certainly to his beloved.

The lesser lit side of his personality can be understood and readers get a chance to know John in black and white/5. Though the Letters of John appear to be among the simplest books in the New Testament, beneath their superficial simplicity lies a minefield of complexities that have generated difficult debates /5(2).

The letters of John, particularly the first letter, bear a remarkable similarity to the Gospel of John. The evidence for apostolic authorship of the Fourth Gospel is quite strong.

Thus, the correlation between the Gospel and the letters demonstrate a high probability that John the. In The Letters of John Cheever, edited and annotated by his son Benjamin, Cheever reveals his most private thoughts to friends, famous writers, family, and lovers—all of whom he encouraged to discard what he wrote.

“Saving letters is like trying to preserve a kiss,” he by: 5. The traditional view contends that all the letters are by the hand of John the Apostle, and the linguistic structure, special vocabulary, and polemical issues all lend toward this theory.

[1] Also significant is the clear warning against paying heed to those who say that Jesus was not a flesh-and-blood figure: "For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh.".

The three Letters of John were written between c and 88AD, after the writing of John’s Gospel in cAD and before the Revelation given to John in cAD. John is writing from the ‘mother’ church in Ephesus to believers in numerous ‘daughter’ churches spread across the interior of Asia Minor.

The First Letter of John is the fourth of seven catholic or universal letters of the New Testament of the Bible, along with the James, the First and Second Letters of Peter, the Second and Third Letters of John, and letters are so called because they are addressed to the universal Church in general, and not to a specific community, as, for example, the Philippians.

Overview of the book of the Bible Included in Bible Study Basics: The Letters of John: Each chapter is broken down into main themes including Living in the Light, Stay True to Christ, Love and. The Gospel of John (Greek: Εὐαγγέλιον κατὰ Ἰωάννην, romanized: Euangélion katà Iōánnēn) is the fourth of the canonical gospels.

The book is written anonymously, although it identifies an unnamed "disciple whom Jesus loved" as the source of its traditions, and reached its final form around AD 90–It most likely reflects a "Johannine community" in conflict with. The Gospel of John, the Letters of 1, 2 and 3 John, and Revelation Saint John the Evangelist on Patmos by Hans Burgkmair The writings of John are often assigned the latest dates of all New Testament literature, with some secular scholars placing them well into the second century A.D., and even most conservative scholars dating at least.

This book is a selection of letters between John and Abigail Adams, the couple who shaped and experienced the birth of the United States of America. First let me say that I have always had a huge historical crush on John Adams ever since I saw /5.

These three books are often referred to as letters, though only 1 and 2 John truly fit that description. 1 John has no addressee and reads more like an essay than a letter. The three books share the same writing style, however, and so are likely from the same hand.

2 and 3 John are the two of the shortest books in the New Testament. The Johannine epistles, the Epistles of John, or the Letters of John are three of the catholic epistles of the New Testament, thought to have been written AD 85– Most scholars agree that all three letters are written by the same author, although there is debate on who that author is.The message of John’s letters is of perennial relevance, and especially important in our own day.

Ian Hamilton’s concise commentary provides a warmly pastoral explanation of John’s timeless message, pointing the reader to the Word made flesh, the Lord Jesus Christ, as the answer to all problems in the church, whether in the first or the twenty-first century.Getting the Most Out of the Letters of John Suggestions for Individual Study Suggestions for Group Members 1.
