John's three epistles, along with the short epistle of Jude, provide a powerful message of correct living in a wrong world. Such a message is just as relevant today as it has ever been.
Written towards the end of John's life, 1 John was made to revive the faith, love, and hope of his readers and inspire them to renew an authentic, contagious Christian walk. Like two siblings, 2 John and 3 John each have unique personalities, but also have striking similarities. Each takes a unique approach to a single, yet urgent message: balance unconditional love with discerning truth.
Jude, the brother of Jesus, writes with two profound purposes: to expose the false teachers that had made their way into the Christian community, and encourage believers to stand firm in the faith and fight for it.
