John (Part 2)
John wrote to people who were living in a world that had far more in common with ours than we may at first assume. That context was multicultural and pluralistic. There were many different religious perspectives vying for peoples’ allegiance. Generally accepted moral standards were similar in significant ways to our own time. Into that world, John was writing so that people may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God and that by believing they might have life in his name.
