(The) of the New Testament are those Epistles not
addressed to any particular church or individual. Conventionally they
are seven- viz. 1 James, 2 Peter, 1 Jude, and 3 John; but 2 John is
addressed to a “lady,” and 3 John to Gaius, and, of course, are not
Catholic Epistles either in matter or otherwise.
