3 John 1:5 Parallel
CommentaryWesley's Notes on the Bible
1:5 Faithfully - Uprightly and sincerely.
During this time, when about 120 believers were together in one place, Peter stood up and addressed them.
When God's people are in need, be ready to help them. Always be eager to practice hospitality.
Therefore, whenever we have the opportunity, we should do good to everyone--especially to those in the family of faith.
Don't forget to show hospitality to strangers, for some who have done this have entertained angels without realizing it!
3 John 1:3
Some of the traveling teachers recently returned and made me very happy by telling me about your faithfulness and that you are living according to the truth.
3 John 1:10
When I come, I will report some of the things he is doing and the evil accusations he is making against us. Not only does he refuse to welcome the traveling teachers, he also tells others not to help them. And when they do help, he puts them out of the church.
