1 From the Elder: my greetings to the Lady, the chosen one, and to her children, whom I love in truth -- and I am not the only one, for so do all who have come to know the Truth -- and I am not the only one, for so so do all who have come to know the Truth-
1John 3:18 John 8:32 1Pet 1:22-23 1Pet 5:1 2John 1:5 1Tim 2:4 Gal 2:5
2 because of the truth that remains in us and will be with us for ever.
1John 1:8 1Cor 9:23 1John 2:14 1John 2:17 1Pet 1:23-25 2Cor 4:5 2Pet 1:12
3 In our life of truth and love, we shall have grace, faithful love and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father.

4 It has given me great joy to find that children of yours have been living the life of truth as we were commanded by the Father.
3John 1:3-4 Eph 5:2 Eph 5:8 Hos 14:9 Mal 2:6 1John 2:6 1Thess 3:6-10
5 And now I am asking you -- dear lady, not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but only the one which we have had from the beginning -- that we should love one another.
1John 3:11 1Pet 4:8 1Thess 4:9 John 13:34-35 John 15:12 1John 2:7-8 1John 3:14-18
6 To love is to live according to his commandments: this is the commandment which you have heard since the beginning, to live a life of love.
1John 5:3 1John 2:24 1John 2:5 John 14:15 John 15:10 John 15:14 Rom 13:8-9
7 There are many deceivers at large in the world, refusing to acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in human nature. They are the Deceiver; they are the Antichrist.
1John 2:26 1John 2:18-22 1John 4:1-3 2Pet 2:1-3 1Tim 3:16 John 1:14 Rev 12:9
8 Watch yourselves, or all our work will be lost and you will forfeit your full reward.

9 If anybody does not remain in the teaching of Christ but goes beyond it, he does not have God with him: only those who remain in what he taught can have the Father and the Son with them.
John 7:16-17 1John 1:3 1John 2:22-24 Acts 2:42 Titus 2:10 Col 3:16 Heb 6:1
10 If anyone comes to you bringing a different doctrine, you must not receive him into your house or even give him a greeting.

11 Whoever greets him has a share in his wicked activities.
1Tim 5:22 Eph 5:11 Ps 50:18 Rev 18:4
12 There are several things I have to tell you, but I have thought it best not to trust them to paper and ink. I hope instead to visit you and talk to you in person, so that our joy may be complete.
1John 1:4 3John 1:13-14 John 15:11 John 16:24 John 17:13 1Cor 16:5-7 2Tim 1:4
