Exploring The Bible

3. New Testament

Book of 1 John (AD90-95)

 

G’day and welcome to our series, “Exploring the Bible” This is also the title of our latest book available on Amazon by clicking here or visiting PulpTheology.com

Key Verses:

  • 1 John 1:3-4
  • 1 John 5:13

 

Throughout, John uses a series of keywords: light, fellowship, love, truth, eternal life, obey, born of God, among them. He bounces ideas back and forward amongst these words to encourage and strengthen his readers. He is aiming to lead his readers from sin to eternal life, that is, God honouring life in this world and the next. He is aware that there is false teaching, known as Gnostic teaching, around and seeks to combat it.

John writes about fellowship with the Father and the Son and other believers. Fellowship comes through obedience to the Word of God and through confession of sin when sin is committed. John also writes so that they may have confidence about eternal life, by discussing foundation and conduct. In doing so, he tackles heretical Gnostic teachers who were challenging apostolic teachings.
