The Book of 1 John

This letter was written by John.  It is not clear to whom he was writing, but it was probably one of the churches near Ephesus. John was the only one of the original apostles who was not killed for his faith.

John spent his later years in the city of Ephesus. He probably wrote this letter from there.  He wrote this letter to correct wrong teachings.

John was an evangelist.  Later, he was exiled to the island of Patmos. Then, he wrote the book of Revelation.
