Exploring The Bible
3. New Testament
Book of 2 John (AD90-95)
- 2 John 8-11
John writes to remind this lady and her children (which may be code for the church and the members of the church) that their lives should be an expression of the Word of God in all areas. This expression is called love or loving one another.
The believers are to continue loving, abiding in God’s Commandments and pay no heed to the false teachers who deny Jesus’ incarnation. They need to be sure he was a real human person and not just a god figure.
