1-3 John

Truth and love are recurring themes throughout John's three epistles.  As those changed by God, genuine believers will characteristically love the truth and exhibit true love for others.  John's fiery passion for truth is coupled with his gentle compassion for his readers, giving these letters a pastoral quality that is both personal and profound. 

Join John MacArthur as he explains each verse in a way that is both doctrinally precise and intensely practical.

The MacArthur New Testament Commentary series comes from the experience, wisdom, and insight of one of the most trusted ministry leaders and Bible scholars of our day.  Each volume was written to be as comprehensive and accurate as possible, dealing thoroughly with every key phrase and word in the Scripture without being unnecessarily technical.  This commentary will help to give a better, fuller, richer understanding of God's Word, while challenging the reader to a vibrant personal spiritual walk.

Synopsis:

The apostle John is really a man for our

time. He wrote his three New Testament

letters in a bold, direct, even dogmatic

manner-more so perhaps than any

other New Testament writer. Although

renowned traditionally as the apostle of

love (and he was), he was an authoritative,

uncompromising teacher-an

exclusive-style instructor with a crucial

message of truth versus error, a message

which the twenty-first century church

needs to hear.

Synopsis:

The apostle John is really a man for our times. He wrote his three New Testament letters in a bold, direct, even dogmatic style, more so perhaps than any other New Testament writer. Although renowned traditionally as the apostle of love (and he was), he was an authoritative, uncompromising teacher and an exclusive-style instructor with a crucial message of truth versus error, which the church much needs to hear in the twenty-first century.

This commentary considers John's clear, simple, unambiguous words from his three brief but profound letters. His themes, some of them reiterated more than once, emerge powerfully, such as the first letter's stress on doctrinal certainty, moral clarity, and the preeminence of biblical love, along with the second letter's emphasis on living the truth and the third's on discerning friends and foes in the local church.
