2 and 3 John are short personal notes form the Elder John to the local church. Although brief, these letters provide great insight into the missionary nature of the church, which is constantly sending and supporting those who preach Jesus and guarding against those who do not. While the early church opened its doors to various traveling teachers, John warned against aiding and abetting those who opposed Jesus, by denying His humanity or undercutting his call to love others (2 John). Additionally, John encouraged partnering with those who did preach Jesus, providing them hospitality and care (3 John). Ultimately, these two books stress that every church throughout the ages serves as a partner in God's great mission to restore relationship with His creation through the work of His son Jesus.
