The early church in the 1st century was under attack from both the inside and the outside. The three letters of John the Apostle are full of insight on how to deal with attacks and diversions. Of John's five New Testament books, these include a sermon and two personal letters, one of which may have been written to Mary, the mother of our Lord.
John's First Epistle deals with sanctification, and has been called the New Testament "sanctum sanctorum." John's Second Epistle appears to have been a personal letter to Mary, having been given into his responsibility at the Cross. If so, it has a number of profound implications. John's Third Epistle deals with three people, all Christians: Gaius, the encourager; Diotrephes, a gossip; and Demetrius, an example to be imitated.
