Peter calls for faithfulness and confronts corrupt teachers who distorted Jesus’ message.

Peter issues two warnings against corrupt teachers who are leading the Christian communities astray with their way of life and distorted theology.

Peter addresses their objections to the reality of Jesus' resurrection and the final judgment. He reminds Christians that their hope is in God. In his time on the Day of the Lord, he will expose evil and injustice and remove it to make way for a new Heaven and Earth that's permeated with righteousness, God's love, and people who love God and each other.

Stay Vigilant

2 Peter is an intense, passionate farewell speech addressed to the same messianic church communities as 1 Peter. In the book, Peter challenges Jesus' followers to continue growing in their faith, love, and service to God and be ready for Jesus' return.
