Johannine Literature

We need to study the Johannine literature if we would discover the nature, activity and destiny of the world. Its prince or ruler is the devil (John 12:31, 16:11). Indeed, ‘the whole world is in the power of the evil one’ (1 John 5:19). It is in process of passing away (1 John 2:17), but while it lasts its antagonism to the Church, to God’s people, is deep and bitter (e.g., 1 John 3:13).
