ImmerseMessiah NLT - Page 452


It can be somewhat difficult to track John’s pattern of thought in this
letter, as he seems to move back and forth between ideas. He sometimes raises a topic briefly, then shifts to another thought, followed by
a return to the previous topic. However, both his desire to maintain the
integrity of the gospel message and his attentiveness to living in the
light permeate the entire letter. He summarizes his entire message at
the end of the letter this way: “And we know that the Son of God has
come, and he has given us understanding so that we can know the true
God. And now we live in fellowship with the true God because we live
in fellowship with his Son, Jesus Christ.”
