“The elder unto the wellbeloved Gaius, whom I love in the truth.”
King James Version (KJV)
1:1 Caius was probably that Caius of Corinth whom St. Paul mentions, #Rom 16:23|. If so, either he was removed from Achaia into Asia, or St. John sent this letter to Corinth.
3Jo 1:1 SUMMARY OF III JOHN: Gaius Commended. His Hospitality. His Treatment of Visiting Brethren. The Wicked Conduct of Diotrephes. The Good Report of Demetrius. Benediction. The elder. See PNT "2Jo 1:1". Unto the well-beloved Gaius. This name is mentioned in Ac 19:29 20:4 Ro 16:23 1Co 1:14 The hospitality of the Corinthian Gaius named in Romans agrees well with what John says of him whom he addresses.
