The Books of 1, 2, 3 John and Jude


Riverside 2005

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The four studies which are found in this book will command the attention of a wide circle of readers and indeed will repay this attention. This book contains an introduction to, and an outlined commentary on, four New Testament books, I John, II John, III John, and Jude. These for stimulating epistles are a part of the group of New Testament letters which are usually called the “Catholic” or the “General” epistles.

Truth is many-sided. We grasp it more readily when it is presented by a number of teachers, each possessing a different personality, so God gave us New Testament truth through a plurality of human authors. A part of the writings of two of these authors, John and Jude, are studied in this book. John represents Mystical Christianity while Jude represents Judaic Christianity. John is the apostle of love and personal experience; Jude is the apostle of vigilance and warning. Neither writer neglects nor minimizes doctrine but each stresses practical conduct which should issue from correct doctrine.

Praise for the Print Edition

These commentaries, written in outline form, are concise yet comprehensive, doctrinally sound and practically useful.

—Rev. John Edward HAO, President Faith Bible Seminary, Queens, NY

These commentaries are brief but thorough. They simplify the difficult passages. These books are factual, not fanciful, in their interpretation of the Bible.

—George A Hern, Pastor, Dellwood Baptist Church, Memphis, TN

Dr. Gingrich's commentaries have been used by thousands. Read and be blessed.

—Dr. Roger R. Clapp, Professor of Bible and Theology, Mid South Bible College
