3 John 1:9 – I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first, will not welcome us. In this study we will focus on the very obscure Diotrephes from the very obscure book, and identify the common traits in a church leader that John has condemned as evil – that which we should not imitate.
3 John 1:15 – Peace be to you. The friends greet you. Greet the friends, each by name. On top of addressing the inconsistency in the numbering of this verse across the versions, we will also look at the value of a personal relationship that the apostles had with their brothers and sisters in Christ.
