3 John 1:3 Parallel
Commentary
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

When the brethren came - Probably the same of whom he speaks in the fifth (3 John 1:5) and following verses, and who appear to have been itinerant evangelists.

The truth that is in thee - The soundness of thy faith and the depth of thy religion.

The Books of the New Testament
[Sidenote: The Author.] The author describes himself as "Peter, an apostle of Jesus Christ" (i. 1). Few books of the New Testament are so well attested as this Epistle. The external evidence for its authenticity is strong, and stronger than that for any other Catholic Epistle except 1 John. It seems to be quoted in Didache, i. 4. The letter of Polycarp written about A.D. 110 shows a complete familiarity with 1 Peter. He evidently regarded it as a letter of the highest authority. His contemporary
