About John's second letter
Most students believe that John wrote this letter. He was the apostle John, who also wrote the Gospel of John.
John calls himself a Church leader. He has authority over churches. He was an old man, and he called the Christians ‘his little children’. He wrote his letters for people to read out in church meetings. He called the churches that he was writing to, ‘the lady and her children’. He is warning these churches against false teachers. Teachers like this do not teach the words of Jesus.
