If you wanted to learn you would be researching what the best scholars on the planet. Who actually go back and translate the ancient manuscripts are
Not reading up on apologist theories that don’t have ANYTHING scholarly to say about the subject.
Jesus and his actual deciples were jews..
Which means they held the Jewish interpretation of reality.
You will not find answers to their writings by looking at it from a modern Christian viewpoint..
Since Jews don’t have a hell and Christians hadn’t invented one yet. Then John couldn’t be talking about the Christian hell..
Since Jews did believe the messiah would be signaled by all the world instinctively knowing gods laws. It is fair to guess John did too.
So that’s what he was waiting on.
