The subject of truth and the idea of a commandment of love is prominent in both books, along with the idea that God is light.

Holding John the son of Zebedee to be the author of Revelation are the second century church fathers Justin Martyr and Irenaeus, along with third century fathers Clement of Alexandria, Tertullian of Carthage, Origen of Alexandria, and Hippolytus of Rome.Both 1 and 2 John speak of a new commandment (1 John 2:8, 2 John 5) of love.Truth is a key concept in all three (1 John 1:6, 1:8, , , 4:6, 5:6; 2 John 1, 2, 4; 3 John 1, 3, 4, 8, 12).Jesus says to the sick man, Do you wish to get well?The sick man replies Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up, but while I am coming, another steps down before me" (John 5:6-7).
