2 John: Take a breath, this is a long one. (all 13 verses). The identification of the original readers of this epistle is difficult because of disagreement regarding the interpretation of “the elect lady and her children” (v. 1). Some scholars believe the address should be taken literally to refer to a specific woman and her children, while others prefer to take it as a figurative description of a local church. The evidence is insufficient for a decisive conclusion. (The Open Bible 2019; Thomas Nelson, publishers.) Big help I am!
