My Understanding of 3 John

The Third Epistle of John is the third of the Johannine epistles of the New Testament.  This Third Epistle of John is the third-to-last book of the New Testament and the Christian Bible as a whole.  Traditionally, it has been attributed to John the Evangelist, the author of the Gospel of John and the other two epistles of John, 1 John and 2 John.  This is one of the smallest epistles of the NT, just 15 verses long.  There is no scholarly consensus as to the exact author of these Johannine works.  However, the author of this third epistle is often called the elder or the presbyter because he used this term in the first verse, just like in 2 John.  Did you ever hear of this short Third Epistle of John?
