1 John 1]

    {John's Good-news could have been written between 63-70 AD. For sure after the other three Good-news books were written.}

    {All of John's letters 1, 2, and 3 were written close together, 63-70 AD. God sealed up the New Testament with the writing of Revelation, and fulfilled all the New Testament and Old Testament prophecies with the destruction of Jerusalem. If any letters had been written after the destruction of Jerusalem, we see no reason for some of the wording contained in them and no mention of God's Judgment Day on the Jewish religion.}

     1:1 What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we saw and our hands touched, concerning the Word of life 1:2 and the life was manifested and we have seen and are testifying and reporting to you* the everlasting life, which was with the Father and was manifested to us. 1:3 What we have seen and have heard, we report to you*, in order that you* may also have fellowship with us, but also our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ; 1:4 and we are writing these things to you*, in order that our joy may be fulfilled.

     1:5 And this is the message which we have heard from him and are reporting to you*, that God is light and there is no darkness in himС none at all. 1:6 If we should say that we have fellowship with him and then should walk in the darkness, we are lying to ourselves, and we are not practicing the truth. 1:7 But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son is cleansing us from every sin. 1:8 If we should say that we have no sin, we are misleading ourselves and the truth is not in us. 1:9 If we confess our sins, he is faithful and righteous {F} to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. 1:10 If we should say that we have not sinned, we make* him a liar and his word is not in us.

     {Footnotes: 1Jn 1:9 is the abbreviated form of: 'in order that he might forgive us the sins in us and in order that he might cleanse us from...'}
