New Testament Memos
As the church began to form, the Apostles often wrote letters to new and existing churches when they could not visit in person. The letters celebrated faithfulness to the gospel, encouraged steadfast living, and corrected wayward teachings. This Groundwork series studies the four shortest letters in the New Testament: Philemon, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude to discover what these succinct memos teach us about living faithfully for the gospel of Jesus Christ.
