Author: Christopher Glyn Narrator: Christopher Glyn Release Date: September 2018

It was written to combat false teachings that had to do with the denial that Jesus had a genuine human body (1:1). This Gnostic view of matter as being evil led to two responses, asceticism or licentiousness. He very clearly writes to give the true tests of a true Christian. These tests also contradicted the Gnostic licentious approach to Christianity. He gives several means to measure the reality of one's conversion experience.

It is a grievous task which God has given to the sons of men to be afflicted with' (1:13).
