This teaching on 2nd John was given by pastor Barry Forder on 24th January 2021 as part of Calvary Chapel Portsmouth’s on-line family service.
In this study we consider a largely unconsidered possibility as to the intended recipient of this short but powerful letter.
Many assume John was writing to the Church in general, or possibly to the local congregation. Others suggest that an unknown lady, but evidently respected at that time, was whom John wrote to.
But there is another possibility, one that sheds light on why John would write this letter in the first place.
Again, many assume 2nd John to be largely a repetition of 1st John, but the Holy Spirit has no need to repeat Himself. Instead, this letter is full of life and significance – not only 2000 years ago, but also to us today.
May you be blessed and encouraged by this study.
