1 John

1 John 5:5

Who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?



Who is it that overcomes the world?
Who is the one who is victorious and overcomes the world?

Only the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God.
It is the one who believes and recognizes the fact that Jesus is the Son of God.

1 John 5:4

For whatever is born of God overcomes the world. And this is the victory that has overcome the world—our faith.



Everyone born of God overcomes the world.
Everyone born of God is victorious and overcomes the world.

This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith.
This is the victory that has conquered and overcome the world—our continuing, persistent faith in Jesus the Son of God.

1 John 4:21

And this commandment we have from Him: that he who loves God must love his brother also.



God has given us this command:
Anyone who loves God must also love their brother and sister.

This commandment we have from God, that the one who loves God should also unselfishly love their brother and sister and seek the best for them.
