The Third Epistle John3-I 1-2 Salutation —As in the preceding letter, so here, St John calls himself ’the ancient’ in addressing a short message to Gaius, a person about whom nothing definite is known. Whether Gaius was a layman or a presbyter, is not clear from the context of the letter. The Apostle’s salutation consists of a prayer that Gaius may prosper both materially and spiritually.
