Letters from John (part eleven)
Second John is a brief letter written to one congregation that had also received and read First John. The letter reinforces many of the same themes present in First John, but customizes some instructions that are relevant for this particular congregation. Specifically, the believers there were struggling to find the balance between truth and love. What happens, they wonder, when the two are in tension? We face similar challenges today. Which should we prioritize when truth and love come into direct conflict? John serves as a church elder as he dispenses wisdom that is designed to protect his sheep in this congregation.
