The Third Epistle of John

According to tradition, this epistle was written by John the Evangelist, who is also John the Apostle.
The writing style is very similar to the Gospel of St. John.
John again refers to himself as an elder. He commends Gaius for his help to those who love the truth.
The name Gaius is metioned several times in the scriptures. For example, a man named Gaius was baptized personally by Paul in Corinth (1 Corinthians 1:14-15). Whether each of these verses refers to the same man is unclear.
John states
[4] I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.
John rebukes Diotrephes for his malicious words and deeds. Diotrephes may have been a local church leader. He had rejected John and missionaries whom he should have received.
John commends Demetrius, who "hath good report of all men."
