Conclusions to WordGo Study of 1 John 1:1-2:2
1 John shows God as the sourse of power in the Christian life. Note how John defines a word, discusses its opposite, then describes what a life in that word should look like. Do note that John the Apostle is attributed as author of this book due to the style; Bible scholars are not 100% sure as no where does it say who the author is.
Loved the reminder to walk in the light and to accept Jesus as our Savior. Great, great stuff!
The content of this book is to the first and second generations of Christians who were going astray from the meaning of the New Testament teachings. They thought that there would be no sin in your life if you were a Christian. John sets the record straight by saying how imperfect people can have eternal life and be with God through His Son, Jesus. Christ is righteous and through him, we can be, too.
Look for the word “know,” which arises 105 times in 1 John (thank, BSF, for this fun fact!).
