In the Johanine epistles we discuss how John provided direction to the early Christian communities in Asia Minor.  Gnosticism was a major obstacle in the area undermining the teachings about Christ.  John wrote to undergird the orthodoxy of the Church and to remind the Christian Churches of what they had been taught.  John taught the communities in Christ how to watch out for and handle false teachers and leaders that were not grounded in New Testament doctrine and practices.
