As time passed after Jesus' death and resurrection, the believers had an increasingly difficult time remembering his actual teachings. Believers from different places were preaching different messages. As fewer and fewer people who had spent time with Jesus in the flesh were alive to share their experiences, John wrote these three letters to clear up Jesus' teachings and to call believers back to his message. The drift away from Jesus' message happens all too easily—even today—and we can all gain from John's wisdom. Learn how to stay true to Christ in a very gray world.
