Dr. Hiebert presents insights from two highly reliable and skilled sources to help believers unravel the perplexities and mysteries of II Peter and Jude—the authors themselves. Straightforward and unembellished, thorough and profound, Second Peter and Jude follows the inspired penmen of these two great books in explaining the intricacies and practicality of their content. With commentary that sheds light on but never eclipses the original teaching, Dr. Hiebert explores important topics such as the nature of the Christian life, false teaching, the Second Coming of Christ, and the rise and fall of the Apostasy.

Top Highlights

“The word ‘angels’ (anggelōn) stands without an article, ‘even angels,’ and indicates that however exalted these creatures have been in relation to mortal man, they were not exempt from God’s judgment when they sinned.” (Page 96)

“His concern for them is, ‘Remember what you know, and be what you are.’4” (Page 65)

“ Their motive was not to serve others but to procure more and more for themselves through others.” (Page 118)

“This knowledge, as set forth in 1:5–6, is personal and is capable or expanding and deepening. Christian knowledge fosters fellowship with God and deepens a consciousness of the believer’s obligation to live a life worthy of His grace.” (Page 178)

“The double negative (ou mē) with the aorist subjunctive has the force of a categorical and emphatic denial.29 ‘Stumble’ is metaphorical to denote a fall or failure. The present tense would have portrayed occasions of failure but continued progress after recovery (cf. James 3:2), but Peter’s aorist tense here points to a stumbling that is final, a fall from which there is no arising (cf. Rom. 11:11). This does not mean that they will ‘never sin,’ but rather that, kept from an irretrievable fall, they will complete their journey to their destiny. They are assured spiritual ‘surefootedness’ on their way to the eternal kingdom.” (Pages 60–61)

Dr. Hiebert has put Fundamentalism deeply into his debt . . . a very thorough, conservative commentary.
