The elder,
To my dear friend Gaius, whom I love in the truth.

3 John 1:3

 

I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes

III John 1:9

 

I wrote to the church, but Diotrephes, who loves to be first, will not welcome us. 

III John 1:9

 

They came to Capernaum. When he was in the house, he asked them, “What were you arguing about on the road?” 

Mark 9:33

 

But they kept quiet because on the way they had argued about who was the greatest.

Mark 9:34

 

Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, “Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.”

Mark 9:35

 

So when I come, I will call attention to what he is doing, spreading malicious nonsense about us. 

III John 1:10

 

Not satisfied with that, he even refuses to welcome other believers. He also stops those who want to do so and puts them out of the church.

III John 1:10

 

Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good

III John 1:11

 

Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God. 

III John 1:11

 

Demetrius is well spoken of by everyone—and even by the truth itself

III John 1:12

 

We also speak well of him, and you know that our testimony is true.

III John 1:12

 

Who do you allow to influence you?
