In this letter, as well as his Gospel account, John declares not only that life is found in Christ, but that He Himself is the life. John wants his readers to have fellowship with Jesus and know Him intimately and personally, sharing in a close relationship likened to that of a marriage.
We hope that studying this book will help you know Jesus personally, experiencing the fullness of His life and joy.
