3 John

3 John
3 JohnSteve Gregg

The book of 3 John sheds light on the early development of church government and leadership roles, according to biblical scholar Steve Gregg. The letter, addressed to an individual named Gaius, warns against following the example of Diatrophys, who disfavored John's messengers. Gregg emphasizes the importance of following the examples and testimonies of trustworthy individuals rather than allowing oneself to be led astray by self-appointed leaders.
