The issue of “the Lady chosen by God” continues to dominate my thinking about this short book. A conclusion I have come to is this- this woman could very likely be a pastor or an evangelist. It is highly likely when John is talking about “her children” he is talking about spiritual children- persons she has given spiritual birth to by leading them to Jesus. The main focus of this letter seems to be to point out their are some doctrinal issues with some of her children. I am wondering if this is written about the same group of people John writes about in 3 John. In 3 John, he seems to get a bit more specific, naming names.
