This Chapter Verse Commentaries:

2Jn 1:1. Ὁ πρεσβύτερος, The Elder) This Epistle also has three parts:-

I. THE INSCRIPTION, 2Jn 1:1-2.

II. THE COMMENDATION of those who practise hospitality: in which-

1. He approves of the former benefits of Cains, 2Jn 1:2-6.

2. He draws forth the commendation itself, introducing reasons and examples on both sides [of a good and of the opposite character], 2Jn 1:6-10.

III. THE CONCLUSION, 2Jn 1:13-13.

-Γαΐῳ, to Caius) Caius of Corinth, who is mentioned Rom 16:23, either closely resembled this Caius, the friend of John, in his hospitality, or he was the same person: if he were the same person, he either migrated from Achaia into Asia, or John sent this letter to Corinth.
