In this third and final book of a three-volume series, B.J. Oropeza covers the writings of the General Epistles and the communities in the book of Revelation—the seven churches in Asia Minor. In Hebrews there were warnings of apostasy with no restoration, yet in James there can be restoration of apostates. Peter identifies marginalized Christians and apostate teachers. Jude confronts apostate intruders. Revelation is about overcoming assimilation in the Asia Minor communities.
