The disciple who put his head on the chest of Jesus and heard the heartbeat of heaven, has also written extensively about his experiences with Jesus.
Today we will look at 1-3 John.
1 John was written in 90 AD from Ephesus and is addressed to both young and old alike.
He writes that "you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name."
In 1 John 5:13 he writes that those who believe in Christ might KNOW that they have eternal life.
His four reasons are summed up throughout his epistles.
That they might be happy - 1:4
That they might not sin - 2:1
That they might be on guard against error - 2:26
That they might KNOW - 5:13
He also exalts God throughout His epistles.
God is Light - 1:5
God is Love - 4:8,16
God is Righteous - 2:29
God is Life - 5:11-12
God is Truth - 2 John
God is Good - 3 John
Outline of John 14:6 is repeated again in 1, 2, 3, John
1 John - Jesus is the Life
2 John - Jesus is the Truth
3 John - Jesus is the Way
Tomorrow is our final day as we look at the book of Revelation.
