Second Peter

The Book of Second Peter in the Bible

Second Peter was written by Jesusdisciple, Peter. It addresses Jesus’ return to earth (his “second coming”) and counters misunderstandings and false teachings (“heresies”) about it.

The literary style of the letter is that of a last will and testament of Peter to the church. This was not done to ensure Peter’s place in history but instead, as a final, lasting effort to teach, guide, and encourage the followers of Jesus before Peter died.

A lifelong student of the Bible, Peter DeHaan, PhD, wrote the 700-page website ABibleADay.com to encourage people to explore the Bible. His main blog and numerous books urge Christians to push past the status quo and reconsider how they practice their faith in every area of their lives.
