Letters of John and Jude (The Daily Study Bible Series. -- Rev. Ed) (English and Hebrew Edition)
The four letters in this volume all deal with heretical teachings within the early Church. Dr. Barclay describes the various forms in which Gnosticism appeared in 1 John, pointing out that some of its postions, such as the notion that the material world, including the human body, is evil, still infect the thinking of some Christians.
