Search The Scriptures —Study 7 — The Epistle of 2 and 3 John

Study 7 From the Books of John is: The Epistles of 2 and 3 John
As I mentioned before the break from Isaiah was a short one. Tomorrow we will go back to the book of Isaiah chapters 40-66.
  1. Compare the tests of a true Christian found in 2 John with those given in 1 John.
  2. Consider the three men mentioned in 3 John, all professing Christians. What does the apostle praise in Gaius? What faults does he find in Diotrephes? What threefold witness does he give in praise of Demetrius?
  3. What dangers arise from listening to false teachers? What is John's answer to the claims of 'advanced thought'? See Notes 3.
  1. 2 Jn. 2. Cf. 'Whom I love in truth... for the sake of the truth'
  2. 2 Jn. 4. 'Following the truth...': i.e., living true Christian lives in obedience to the command which we have received from the Father.
  3. 2 Jn. 9. 'goes ahead': i.e., claims a knowledge superior to God's revelation.
  4. 3 Jn. 5. Cf. Heb. 13:2.
