The Greatest Story Ever Told Session #23: 1 and 2 Peter, 1, 2 and 3 John

(Due to batteries on my recorder running out, comments on 1 and 2 Peter and 1 John can be found here while 2 and 3 John can be here.  Sorry for the inconvenience!)

We continue through the third section of the New Testament--the letters--with two letters from Peter and three letters from John.  In 1 and 2 Peter, our first Pope wrote largely from a baptismal perspective. He encouraged new converts to remain steadfast with Christ, endure suffering and avoid false teaching and teachers.  1, 2 and 3 John feature many themes which permeated the Gospel according to John--light vs. darkness, spirit vs. flesh, love of God and neighbor, testimony, witness, fellowship and belief.
