Sheffield New Testament Guides: 2 Peter and Jude


Sheffield Academic Press 1995

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Dr. Knight covers both of these letters because he believes there is a close association between them. He suggests that the author of 2 Peter, in fact, makes use of Jude to frame his response to the false teachers 2 Peter 3:1. Knight begins, therefore, with a detailed explanation of the content in Jude before embarking on 2 Peter. The guide concludes with a look at the influence of these two letters on early Christianity, especially with regard to eschatological hope. This is why 2 Peter confronts early Christian skepticism about the imminent return of Jesus.
