1 John

The Word Is Alive

First John

About 50 years after the death of Jesus, one of if not the last surviving apostle, had relocated from Jerusalem to Ephesus in modern day Turkey. Writing what is probably a message to be read to several churches in the Roman Province of Asia, John exhorts his readership to demonstrate love for God, each other and for their neighbour, He issues a stark warning against those who would oppose the church, whom John claims have the spirit of the antichrist.

John’s writings are based on eye-witness testimony and form a very reliable account of understanding how disciples of Jesus should live their lives.
