This may be out of line, but I am wondering since kurios is translated
"Lord", shouldn't
we expect kuria tranlated "lady" be considered to be a lord's wife?
Also could not
this also be John's way of identifying the last missionary and faithful
church to be
in Korea. (similar sound). Could it mean that we should expect Korea to
be reunited
and Christian before the Lord's return?

2959 Kuria {koo-ree'-ah}
    1) a Christian woman to whom the second Epistle of John is addressed

2 John 1:1 The elder <4245> unto the elect <1588> lady <2959> and
<2532> her <846> children <5043>, whom <3739> I <1473> love <25> (5719)
in <1722> the truth <225>; and <2532> not <3756> I <1473> only <3441>,
but <235> also <2532> all <3956> they that have known <1097> (5761) the
truth <225>;

2 John 1:5 And <2532> now <3568> I beseech <2065> (5719) thee <4571>,
lady <2959>, not <3756> as though <5613> I wrote <1125> (5719) (5625)
<1125> (5723) a new <2537> commandment <1785> unto thee <4671>, but
<235> that which <3739> we had <2192> (5707) from <575> the beginning
<746>, that <2443> we love <25> (5725) one another <240>.
