  • a. Place ourselves in the shoes of those first-century Christians to whom the book was delivered to. We ought to read it as if we were reading it through their eyes. b. Picture or visualize what we have read. John is very descriptive and we ought to let the divine stroke create a portrait of what is happening in our minds c. Perceive the principle. After we can clearly visualize what is said, we ought to probe it more closely for the overall principle that John is getting across. If we miss the principle, we have studied in vain. But we should warn against placing any kind of interpretation on this book that is inconsistent or contradictory with any other part of the book or of the Bible as a whole. d. Practice the purpose. Once we perceive the principle, seek a purpose in our practice as Christians.
  • Any changes in the usage of Greek from the gospel of John and the epistles should be understood by the circumstance that John wrote under—in exile on Patmos.
