Harvest Teachings

Verse By Verse With Pastor Paul Mowery

Author: The apostle John according to church tradition. The author is identified only as “the elder” (1:1).

Date: Approximately AD 92.

In Ten Words or Less: Church leaders must be humble, not proud.

Details: Addressed to a believer named Gaius, 3 John praises those (like Gaius and another Christian named Demetrius) who lead in “charity before the church” (1:6). But 3 John also has harsh words for Christians like Diotrophes, “who loveth to have the preeminence” (1:9) and refuse to show kindness and hospitality to traveling evangelists.
