There are many issues with the Critical Text of the New Testament. A cursory look at any critical apparatus, and you’ll discover thousands of instances where word position is changed, where words or phrases (or entire verses or passages) are stricken from the text entirely. And, the war rages on between the critical exegetes and their ecclesiastical text adversaries. King-James-Onlyists. Textus Receptus Adherents. Don’t even get started with which Old Testament text the New Testament writers quoted from. That’s an entirely separate can of worms.

But, in this article, I want to focus on a specific verse in the New Testament: 3 John 1:15. It is a tiny ending in a tiny letter at the back of the bible, just before the book of Revelation. It is the biblical equivalent of a pass-over State.

After all, when was the last time 3 John was the main focus of a sermon or bible study? In the proverbial throws of an apologetical defense, when have you ever heard, “Yes, but in 3 John 1:15 it states!”

I would wager: never.

So, if these kind of vague and mysterious bible trivia fascinate you as much as they do me, then let’s find out what I discovered.
