Ektroma can denote a healthy child whose mother died in childbirth. So she will have no more children. This way Paul expresses that he is not just the latest (hustatos), but rather the very last (eskhatos panton) man to which Christ appeared before his return from heaven.

Another possible (though less likely) interpretation is that the Greek word translated as especially in the ESV (malista Strong's #3122) should be translated as namely, or that is to say.

John appears to correlate what he has seen / heard (and what his readers had seen / heard) to what he was doing (and to what they were doing). For example, in 1 Jn 1:1-3, the Apostle John relates to his readers what he has seen / heard and now proclaims to his readers concerning "the Word of Life" manifest in the flesh. The idea here is that what is heard / ...

Excellent question, Susan. There are different perspectives on this. Some take it that John's own thinking about the epistle changed at this point in his writing, and he began to think of it as a work that would be completed (e.g. Longacre).
