That which we have seen (o ewrakamen). Third use of this form (verses John 123 ), this time resumption after the parenthesis in verse John 2 . And heard (kai akhkoamen). Second (verse John 1 for first) use of this form, a third in verse John 5 . Emphasis by repetition is a thoroughly Johannine trait. Declare we (apaggellomen). Second use of this word (verse John 2 for first), but aggelia (message) and anaggellomen (announce) in verse John 5 . That ye also may have (ina kai umei echte). Purpose clause with ina and present active subjunctive of ecw (may keep on having). "Ye also" who have not seen Jesus in the flesh as well as those like John who have seen him. Like kai umin (to you also) just before. Fellowship with us (koinwnian meq hmwn). Common word in this Epistle, from koinwno, partner ( Luke 5:10 ), and koinwnew, to share, in ( 1 Peter 4:13 ), with meta emphasising mutual relationship ( Acts 2:42 ). This Epistle often uses ecw with a substantive rather than a verb. Yea, and our fellowship (kai h koinwnia de h hmetera). Careful explanation of his meaning in the word "fellowship" (partnership), involving fellowship with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ and only possible in Christ.
