a bible, theology, politics, news, networking, and discussion site

I have heard different takes on this:

  • It means whatever Jesus taught because doctrine is teaching. 
  • It means the basic doctrinal truths about Jesus
  • I have also been told that 2 John 1:9 refers to heretics who depart from the faith as defined in the doctrinal truths about Jesus. 

Do either of these fit? Or neither? What say you?

I believe it refers to the truth about the person and work of Jesus. At least, I think that is what John spoke about.

There seems to be a correlation with Jesus Incarnation. And I agree; there seems to be reference to the person and work of Jesus. Do you know if "the doctrine of Christ" has ever been formulated as such by the Reformed Church, or any of the church fathers?

That I do not know.

I think John was probably battling Gnostic or Docetic tendencies.

Do you have access to John Gill's commenataries? As old as they are, there's an immensity of background info in them.
