Bible Commentary for 3 John 1:13

Wesley's Notes for 3 John 1:13


1:11 Follow not that which is evil - In Diotrephes. But that which is good - In Demetrius. He hath not seen God - Is a stranger to him.

1:12 And from the truth itself - That is, what they testify is the very truth. Yea, we also bear testimony - I and they that are with me.

1:14 Salute the friends by name - That is, in the same manner as if I had named them one by one. The word friend does not often occur in the New Testament, being swallowed up in the more endearing one of brother.
