3 John

About the Third Epistle of John.

books The Book:

Is addressed to Caius, or Gaius, but whether to the Christian of that name in Macedonia (Act_19:29) or in Corinth (Rom_16:23) or in Derbe (Act_20:4) is uncertain. It was written for the purpose of commending to Gaius some Christians who were strangers in the place where he lived, and who had gone thither for the purpose of preaching the gospel (3Jo_1:7).

The Second and Third Epistles were probably written soon after the First, and from Ephesus.
