Item Description...
Overview
The truths in 1 John are primarily for children of God. It is a family epistle. John also gives careful attention to the believer's responsibilities to be in fellowship with God. The book has in it both positives and negatives with respect to the behavior of the child of God. Both 2 John and 3 John have themes of love and truth. Second John seems to emphasize Christian love with its foundation in truth. Third John, on the other hand, seems to emphasize truth with its foundation in Christian love. Truth is not absent in 2 John; neither is love absent in 3 John. Rather, it is a matter of a different emphasis in these two letters. Jude's purpose in writing was to warn his readers about false teaching and to encourage the believers to defend the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints (v. 3). A series of study questions at the end of each chapter is designed to enable the reader to study the details of the book of Jude on their own or in a group setting.

Publishers Description

IT IT OBVIOUS TO OTHERS THAT YOU ARE A CHILD OF GOD?

DO YOU CLAIM TO LOVE GOD BUT HATE YOUR BROTHER? Such hypocrisy is contrary to the teaching of 1 John 3:10, that believers in Christ should walk in the light, living righteously before God and showing love and compassion to others. In this commentary on these letter to believers, Dr.Lightner reveals how the faith once delivered to the saints encourages believers to live for Christ, to act appropriately according to truth and love, and to uphold that truth in times of apostasy.

As the sole survivor of the original disciples, John wrote with the deliberate pastoral authority and demeanor. His letters are rooted and grounded in a practical local church ministry. The truths in 1 John draw careful attention to the believer's responsibilities to be in fellowship with God.

The books of 2 John and 3 John serve as bookends for love and truth. Second John emphasizes Christian love with its foundation in truth. Third John, on the other hand, emphasizes truth with its foundation in Christian love. Truth is not absent in 2 John; neither is love absent in 3 John. Dr.Lightner points the reader toward righteous living in both the love of Christ and the return of His doctrine.

The book of Jude then moves from a heart of concern for the truth to its application to the lives of God's people. George Lawlor points out Jude's "dramatic and forceful manner of writing and his use of the Old Testament records to support his argument." Jude writes as a man of courage, conviction, and concern. In so doing, he calls upon believers in every generation to "contend earnestly for the faith."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
College student  May 24, 2005
I very much enjoyed this commentary. Lightner gets straight to explaining what the apostle was saying by defining various Greek words/phrases. But he doesn't take it too far and give too much about the history...gives just enough to offer a clear understanding while keeping it at a practical/flowing level. And there are questions at the end of each chapter and a jubilee of extra resources! I recommend to anyone that's going to be leading a Bible study or just wants a better understanding of the context without getting over-scholarly.
