3 John

Details, Please

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