Know Your Bible – December 14, 2015

2 John

Details, Please (Part 2)

The letter may be a reaction to the “gnostics,” who taught that Jesus was spirit only and that He just appeared to suffer and die on the cross.  This teaching, of “a deceiver and an antichrist” (7), should be avoided at all costs – to the point of barring one’s door against those who believe it (10).
