John’s Historicistic Epistles

     Let it always be remembered what Jesus said when He died on the cross.   As the only sin-bearer for the sins of His children, He then cried out: "It is finished!"5516 

     Last.   The Apostle assured His addressees that Jesus died not only for the sins of the Apostles and for the sins of those who believed in Him through the word of the Apostles.   For Jesus died for the sins of all who believe in Him.   Indeed, He died even for the sins of all who not yet believe in Him but who will yet repent and believe in Him.
