The books of 1, 2, and 3 John contain letters filled with theology and wisdom for Christian living. First John is a pastoral essay for a community experiencing spiritual confusion; Second John is a warning about false teaching; and Third John is a letter about hospitality.
But there are bigger issues behind these letters: who has the authority to interpret the true significance of Jesus? What does it mean to follow Jesus in a culture containing competing truth claims?
These were important questions asked by first century Christians, and they’re just as important for Christians today.
In this video series, Karen H. Jobes provides you with an in-depth study of 1, 2, and 3 John. In addition to getting an overview of the letters—who wrote them, to whom they were written, and the historical and cultural setting—you will also examine each letter verse-by-verse.
You will get an introduction to 1, 2, and 3 John that is not only detailed and thorough, but also accessible for students, scholars, pastors, and all Christians.
