No one is better qualified to answer that question than someone who lived and walked with Jesus while he was on earth. Matthew, one of Jesus’ disciples, was such a man.
Matthew helped eat the loaves and fish when Jesus fed the 5,000 men who gathered with their wives and children on the shores of the Sea of Galilee. He was along that night when Jesus came walking on the water to meet the disciples in the middle of the sea. He was also along when Jesus calmed the storm that threatened to sink their little fishing boat. These were happenings no man could forget, no matter how long he lived.
Jesus took every opportunity He could to teach his disciples about His Father and the kingdom of heaven. He pulled simple lessons from nature as they walked the pathways of rural Galilee and Judea. Birds, flowers, farmers, and fishermen all be illustrations He used in His teaching–a teaching so profound it changed the world.

These epistles are probably among the latest written books of the New Testament. They were probably written in Ephesus, close to the end of the first century. John was an old man by now. He had followed Jesus when he was probably just a teenager, and had served his Master for all these years.
These books bring out an important perspective of Christ and the Church.
