Specifically, Wallace says on pg. 277, "In conclusion, 1 John 5:20
apparently contains a legitimate TSKS construction. This construction
conforms both to the requirements of Sharp's rule and evidently has the same
semantic force, viz. referential identity. Further, it seems that the
antecedent of ["this"] is [Jesus Christ]. Our conclusion is, then, that
First John ends with an affirmation of Jesus Christ as the true God and
eternal life. Nevertheless, in light of the scarcity of syntactical
parallels to 1 John 5:20, this conclusion is more tentative than for Titus
2:13 or 2 Pet 1:1."
