D. Edmond Hiebert covers 1 John, 2 John, and 3 John in this expositional commentary. He defends Johannine authorship and discusses textual evidence for the Johannine Comma of 1 John 5:7. His exposition highlights propitiation, a premillennial Antichrist, Christ s imminent return, and warnings against false teachers and argues for an actual lady as recipient of 2 John. Expounding the Greek but accessible to English-only readers, Hiebert is especially valuable for sermon preparation.
