Second Peter

The Book of Second Peter in the BibleSecond 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.
