Purpose of 1 John

Most commentators agree that the theme verse of this letter is 5:13

John writes, “I have written this to you who believe in the name of the Son of God, so that you may know you have eternal life.”

This means that John’s target audience in this letter is members of the established church, not unbelievers.
