What are the General Epistles?
Some make reference to the general epistles as the non-Pauline epistles; the books of the New Testament that appear they have not been written by the apostle Paul. The claim is that these writings have different authors and make up seven of the New Testament books. These books aren’t addressed to any particular individual. In fact, they appear to address the constitution of the new Christian church with its by-laws and Godly ethics. In other situations, many consider them to be universal letters addressed to everyone.
