Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for 3 John 1:14


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.


People's Bible Notes for 3 John 1:14


3Jo 1:14 Greet the friends. An uncommon title in the New Testament, where it is almost supplanted by the dearer title of "brethren" or the holier one of "saints".
