A. 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God:
B. and every one that loveth him that begat
C. loveth him also that is begotten of him.
C’. 2 By this we know that we love the children of God,
B’. when we love God, and keep his commandments. 3 For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.
a. 4 For whatsoever is born of God
b. overcometh the world:
c’. and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
b’. 5 Who is he that overcometh the world,
a’. but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God?
