Synopsis:
This paper is an exegetically based discussion of 1 John 4:7-21 contextualized within a rhetorical and theological analysis of the epistle. Part one identifies some of the central theological themes of John’s letter and how these themes are supported by his rhetoric; part two is a short exegesis of a selected passage, 4:7-21, including an appreciation for this passage’s function within the epistle as a whole; and part three is a theological reflection on the selected passage and its application to life within the church in America today.
