1 John 2:2-4 The Passion Translation (TPT)

He is the atoning sacrifice[a] for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.[b]

The New Commandment

Here’s how we can be sure that we’ve truly come to know God: if we keep his commands.[c] If someone claims, “I have come to know God by experience,” yet doesn’t keep God’s commands, he is a phony and the truth finds no place in him.


  1. 1 John 2:2 Or “satisfaction for our sins.”
  2. 1 John 2:2 In these two verses we find three things that Christ is to us: (1) our forgiving Redeemer/Intercessor, (2) the Righteous One who suffered in our place, and (3) the atoning sacrifice for our sins, which cleanses and shelters us.
  3. 1 John 2:3 Keeping God’s commands is the proof and evidence of coming to know God, not the means of knowing God.
