    2 john – Legacy Edition

    Written for Jesus’ Apostle John, possibly in Aramaic, sometime late in the 1st Century CE.

    Chapter 1

    1 The older man, to the chosen lady and to her children whom I truly love… and not just from me, but from all those that have come to know the truth 2 through the truth that exists in us and will continue to be with us through the age.
    3 For the kindness, mercy, and peace from God the Father and from Jesus the Anointed One (the Son of the Father) [comes to] us through this truth and love.

    4 I’m so very happy, now that I’ve found out that your children are still walking in the truth and following the commandments that we received from the Father.
    5 So I’m begging you lady (I’m not giving you a new commandment, just one that we’ve had since the beginning) to love each other.
    6 And this is [how we prove our] love:
    By following His commandments!

    Yes, that’s the commandment! It’s the same thing that you’ve heard since the beginning… just keep on following it.
    7 Because, many have strayed [back] into the world and will no longer admit that Jesus the Anointed One came in the flesh…
    And those that have strayed are the AntiChrists.

    8 So watch out for yourselves!
    Be careful not to destroy the things we’ve worked [so hard] on, so that you can receive the full reward!
    9 For those that are running ahead and not remaining in the teaching of the Anointed One don’t really have God.
    However, those that stick with this teaching have both the Father and the Son.

    10 Therefore, if anyone comes to you and doesn’t bring this teaching, don’t welcome him into your home or even greet him, 11 for those that greet him become sharers in his evil deeds.

    12 Although I have many [other] things to write to you, I don’t want to do it with paper and ink.
    Rather, I’m hoping to come and speak to you face to face, so your joy can be realized.

    13 The children of your chosen sister send you their greetings.
