A Survey of 2 John
John's second letter is much less lengthy and less complicated than his first letter—perhaps because it's a personal and private letter. John mentioned “truth” five times in this letter and “love” four times, and both are key to understanding 2 John. John's desire was that “the chosen lady” who received this letter would maintain a balanced perspective on life: love and truth . . . practice and doctrine . . . walking and standing . . . accepting and rejecting. Reading the letter aloud a couple of times will reveal the balance between truth and love—a balance greatly needed in our day of ridiculous and unbiblical extremes.
