We concluded our series on the shortest books of the Bible with a look at 3 John, the last of John’s epistles. In just a few verses, John 3 gives us an amazing look at how the church should be, and also how it can go wrong. Called to be a new, loving family in faith, the church sometimes devolves into petty ego contests and infighting. Still, the vision of the early church in 3 John is relevant and inspiring for the church today.

The gospels turns strangers into siblings.
