Jamieson-Fausset-Brown Commentary

3 John 1:14

_ _ face to faceGreek, “mouth to mouth.”

_ _ Peace — peace inward of conscience, peace fraternal of friendship, peace supernal of glory [Lyra].

_ _ friends — a title seldom used in the New Testament, as it is absorbed in the higher titles of “brother, brethren.” Still Christ recognizes the relation of friend also, based on the highest grounds, obedience to Him from love, and entailing the highest privileges, admission to the intimacy of the holy and glorious God, and sympathizing Savior; so Christians have “friends” in Christ. Here in a friendly letter, mention of “friends" appropriately occurs.

_ _ by name — not less than if their names were written [Bengel].

Matthew Henry's Commentary

See commentary on 3 John 1:12-14.

John Wesley's Explanatory Notes

3 John 1:14

Salute the friends by name — That is, in the same manner as if I had named them one by one. The word friend does not often occur in the New Testament, being swallowed up in the more endearing one of brother.
