The important word "truth" is a key word in the apostle John's vocabulary, occurring more in his writings than in those of any other New Testament author. In the one-chapter epistle of 3 John, it occurs six times.
He addressed his epistle to "Gaius, whom I love in the truth" (v. 1). He rejoiced over "the truth that is in thee" (v. 3). He urged his readers to be "fellowhelpers to the truth" (v. 8) and commended Demetrius, who had a good report "of the truth itself" (v. 12).
