Video Sessions: Week One: Introduction | You’ve Got Mail (46:06)—In this introduction to the study, Jen gives background information for John and the original recipients of his letter. She also highlights some of the main themes that will come up time and again in the letters of 1, 2, and 3 John—the call to walk in righteousness, show love to each other, and guard the truth revealed in God’s Word. Week Two: A Credible Witness (45:50)—Jen’s teaching on 1 John 1:1–2:2 walks us through how John establishes himself as a credible witness to Jesus and gives us practical ways we can be the same for others, as people who know Him. We are challenged to be women who are lights in the darkness, who live in a way that promotes the growth of righteousness in others, and to advocate or intercede on behalf of others. Week Three: The Tests of Righteousness and Love (44:06)—As Jen walks through 1 John 2:3-17, she explains John’s first two “tests” that help bring assurance to the sincerity of one’s faith—the tests of righteousness and love. She helps us understand what it means to walk as Jesus walked and to love as Jesus loved. Week Four: The Test of Truth, The Call to Abide (37:55)—For week four, Jen covers 1 John 2:18-29, which includes John’s third “test” for assessing one’s faith, the test of truth, which we do by holding everything we are taught by others up against the teachings of God‘s Word. This portion of John’s letter also introduces the call to abide in Christ, to make your home in Him. Week Five: Practice Righteousness, Pursue Love, Possess Assurance (47:53)—With this week’s teaching of 1 John 2:29–3:24, Jen examines what it means to be a part of God’s family, to be “called children of God.” In response to John’s teaching, Jen challenges us to make confession a regular practice, love others actively, and rest assured in our identity as children of God. Week Six: Truth and Error; God Is Love (46:02)—In this video, Jen walks viewers verse-by-verse through 1 John 4, which includes John’s encouragement to test what you hear others teach against the truths revealed in God’s Word. Jen goes on to explain what it means that God is love and that He challenges us to love because He first loved us. Week Seven: Overcoming the World (34:32)—The final chapter of 1 John begins with John revisiting the themes that have been central to his letter—the tests of righteousness, love, and truth. Jen walks through 1 John 5:1-12, highlighting John’s challenge to believe the testimony that God establishes about Himself, and to show that you love God by obeying His commandments. Week Eight: That You May Know (40:30)—Jen brings her teaching of 1 John to a close with the remaining nine verses of John’s letter, which wrap up with a strong emphasis on knowing that you have eternal life and the encouragement to pray according to the will of God. John wants his readers to believe with confidence that they are secure in Christ and that God hears their prayers. Week Nine: Walk in Truth and Love (49:04)—Jen transitions her teaching to the
