Abstract

There is still unclarity about the people against whom the first two Epistles of John are directed. The article presents a case to regard them as adherents of a specific Christology which saw Christ as a non-human, merely divine being. Historical evidence for the existence of this view can be found in the , which must de dated before 150, as well as in Ignatius’ polemics against this view. An exegesis of the relevant passages in the Epistles contains some new insights.
