Matthew Henry's Commentary on 2 John 1:13
Commentary on 2 John 1:12-13
(Read 2 John 1:12-13)
The apostle refers many things to a personal meeting. Pen and ink were means of strengthening and comforting others; but to see each other is more so. The communion of saints should be maintained by all methods; and should tend to mutual joy. In communion with them we find much of our present joy, and look forward to happiness for ever.
